They are a veritable goldmine of raw, human emotion. Anger, fear, sadness, even manic happiness. Ladron de Inocencia means Thief of Innocence. I thought it sounded better in Spanish.

Of all the portraits I've ever painted, this is the one I'm the most proud of. The subject is my mother, Barbara. I am so proud of the person she is: hardworking, loving, loyal, successful, grounded, all the things I strive to be. She's not just Mom. She's my best friend, too. This is for you, Mom, with all the love in the world.

I haven't really been bitten by the inspiration bug lately. Couple that with the fact that I've just started a new job that takes up most of my time. But since today was my day off, I decided to whip something up.
