In the spring of 2019, I went to DC with Cindy Dill to paint portaits of formerly incarcerated young men with the Free Minds Book Club and Writing Workshop, a non-profit helping young men involved with the justice system.  My hope was validated when the first young man was overheard saying he felt really special.  One thing all these men need is self-esteem, and usually only important people get their portraits made.  Cindy managed 9 in four days.  I managed only 6 and this one was one I brought home to finish when my client had to leave with only the grisaille accomplished.
