Rob Helms

Portrait of Bobby

A few years back I did this portrait of my friend Rob Helms. I hope that he still enjoys it. I am fascinated by the way that personality comes through a portrait. Rob has this self deprecating side to his personality which is really a gem. While he was having his portrait painted I was only focused on the details: the eyes being in the right place and the proper shadow to the nose etc… I did not choose to create his personality. But it is, in the end, the sum of those parts and as such it comes through very clearly.
