Scott’s project, ‘100 Portraits in 20 Weeks’ has been running for some time now … we’re number 90 of the 100 so this must be the start of week 19! We’ve been following his progress with great interest, enjoying his style and rendition of so many different people. We feel privileged to be part of his project and to be captured by a true master. Thank you, Scott.
