SUSAN DHAENENS

When I smile at a child, more often than not the smile is returned, accompanied by squinting little eyes.  Confused at first, at some point it finally dawned on me that the little squints were actually a mirror of my own squinchy smile.  Working on a portrait, I catch myself smiling, furrowing my brow, squinting; all in response to the photos from which I'm trying to capture a subject's reflection. 

Portraits convey emotion literally; capturing emotion in the human face is my longtime passion.  Recently, I am attempting to create meaningful "feeling" landscapes that evoke a sense of calm, happiness or other emotions.  Colored pencil and acrylic paint are the mediums I've practiced so far.
