"Truth. Beauty. Experience. Emotion. The artists included in Art journey : portraits and figures say that they have discovered all of these things and more through their work. Sometimes it's in the eyes. Or perhaps it's in the hint of an expression that seems to beckon one closer, begging to share a secret. Maybe it's in the tilt of a chin. Or the posture or stance of one's subject. But in a well executed portrait or figure? Something special, something unique is invariably revealed--oftentimes about both the subject and the artist."--Jacket flap
