Welcome to our second Portrait of an Artist Showcase! This Showcase complements our Portrait of an Artist Column edited by Jennifer Bracewell. Every two weeks Jennifer will review and curate work that has been submitted to our dedicated Flickr group. In addition, to creating a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we will also highlight a few images that have caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition and subject matter.
If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us! This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) regarding mobile portraiture and portraiture in general.
We hope you enjoy this weeks’ showcase…
Many congratulations to all the artists featured this week, links to their images can be found below:

Being There – Roger Guetta
This creative collage stood out. I love the woman’s expression combined with abstract elements. Roger Guetta excels here, showing us a stellar example of his signature style.
Untitled by Ginger Lucero
I think emotion is what draws me to portraits, and I feel the rawness of feeling portrayed by the artist. This portrait is simple, powerful, quietly mournful.

Michelle is a master of portraying a myriad of emotions. This gorgeous piece has palpable pain. I love the way the figure is mostly obscured and the bit of her face that we do see appears to be in agony. Brilliant.
