I painted Aaron Reed today

Picture of Chris Dyer.
I painted Aaron Reed today, he's got his elbow on Chris Dyer's shoulder. When I paint, I feel such joy, it is hard to walk away and go back to my other responsibilities. I feel so fortunate to have been chosen to do this work. I pray I can do it justice.
When I paint the men, and I am face to face with each one, I feel a little like I get to know them as I look into their eyes as they emerge.
