Abstract: The (sitter-subject) people and the paint meet and through the painter, his affinity to paint, and to people, the result becomes a portrayal of that person and as very deep a look into and recounting of that person as the painter has the ability to fathom. How deeply into a person can a painting reach? The interest, depth of understanding, and study—also the painter's affinity to paint—determine this and the success of the resulting work. However, such a painting may also require some work; i. e. looking and studying on the part of the observer to be fully seen and appreciated, in other words, to exist.
