Allison is a part of the crew who lived or visited the building I first moved into in Philadelphia in Northern Liberties. I kinda love the way this portrait came out. It kinda reminded me of a Picasso a bit so that made me feel very good about it. I vaguely remember that at the end of the session Allison was surprised that she got to keep the portrait. I think maybe she was just being a good friend thinking I needed portrait models and wanted to help me out. So if this was a lagniappe — or a little something extra — then that is exactly what I wanted this project to be for each and every person who sat for their portrait. Mission accomplished.
