P for Paint, Portrait and Pleasure, not Photo.

by Carl Frederik Waage Beck on juli 22, 2009

At home I have several binders full of old photographs; happy days, sad days and all the stuff in between.
Yesterday was a great day: Celebrating my wife Annes birthday at home and with her family.

I love photos, don’t get me wrong.

But sometimes the best way to catch the essence of someone else is by not being accurate. Painting is not a replacement for cameras. There’s just no comparison to a digitally enhanced Nikon D3X photo, so no point in trying.

No way.

Besides, Hanging a 60×60 cm. photo of yourself in the living room might seem a bit self-absorbed.
A painting however can pull it off :o)

Best regards, Carl
