This is a fantastic portrait by my good friend Stef, an amazing, talented artist. This portrait is one of my favorites lately, the face is so kind, the eyes so soulful. I love everything about it. The gentleness, the medium, the tones. Even though the colors are cool, it is such a warm portrait, and the juxtaposition is beautiful.
Check out the rest of his photostream: there are some lovely vistas and postcards of southern california life, as well as fun portraits of his friends, a cast of characters that tell a story of their own.
