Gwenn Seemel

I know, I know... three posts in one day? I promise, I do have a life - but today I'm feeling a little more inspired than usual.

Gwenn Seemel is a portrait artist I came across while doing some theater in Portland, Oregon. She painted some friends of mine. She captures her subject so perfectly. Her portraits are dynamic, abstract, specific and completely inspiring.

Although her portraits might be of other people, stare at them long enough and you’ll find they have an interesting way of becoming as much about...her own hunger to understand the world. — - Inara Verzemnieks, The Oregonian, July 2007

Here are a few goodies from her gallery.
