The lovely Olivia Ives-Flores asked me to join her father, the portrait painter Henry Flores-Galbis, at Yes. Oui. Si. to set up a temporary photo portrait studio next to Henry's temporary oil portrait studio. Working side by side with Henry, sometime with the same subject, was a fascinating experience. The challenges in crafting a portrait in each medium are different. Still wrapping my head around exactly that. I rarely paint anymore, and watching Henry at work was inspiring and rather mesmerizing.
Here you can see him at work: painting, looking, seeing.
