The Decision Portrait Series has been an artistic adventure. It is part embroidery, photography, and collaboration with each "model". It has been a design challenge, a conceptual development, and an organizational task. One of the very best parts of working like this is: "THE HUNT". While creating the series, I found myself constantly on the lookout for "models"....people who might fulfill one of the potential portraits on my "wish list".
A few days later she met me in the nice computer lab. I showed her the Decision Portrait blog (as it existed then ... a documentation of the works in progress and a conceptual statement). She didn't hesitate, signed the model's release (yes...I still carry them in my purse!), and posed for this photo.
