Welcome to Laura!

Some people find them creepy, but I've always loved looking at the
expressions of people in portraits.

I've accumulated a wall of women's portraits over the years from flea
markets and a couple slightly more spendy places (the pencil drawing)...

When I had a big office, the two boys were on the wall behind my desk
like the portraits you see in law offices of partners, but happily
pre-pubescent. Now they have to be happy hanging out in the alcove
outside my bathroom.

While the poodle is not officially a "portrait," his slightly
judgmental gaze is very knowing. He is over my bed.
