Portraits of an Artist

Oscar Wilde once said "Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not the sitter."

I used to paint a lot of portraits and here are a couple of my favourites:

Portrait of a Young Woman, by Ingrid Mida Oil on canvas, 30x90 inches, 2007 (Model Holly in front of her portrait)

The Lacemaker after Vermeer by Ingrid Mida, 2006 Oil on canvas 20x20

Blue Jean Babes (#3 and #1) by Ingrid Mida 2006 Oil on canvas, 30x40

What these works say about me, I'm not sure....
