Portland based French-American portrait artist Gwenn Seemel is brilliant. I say brilliant in the intellectual sense and also as a descriptive term to describe her bright and complex portrait paintings. She knows art very well and has a crystal clear perspective on her own artwork which she openly--and most-eloquently--shares through her video blog on vimeo. Her art seems very influenced by the dualistic relationship between her French heritage and her American nationality. Her blog is very informative and discusses topics such as portraiture, internet copyright, commission work, French and American art, and is in both French and English; not to mention it is an autobiographical insight into the mind of a very talented artiste. Merci merci, Gwenn Seemel.
