That sounds almost biblical! Monday morning I set off for North Walpole, NH to meet up with Jon McAuliffe. Jon’s an artist, managing to do portraits – of the painted variety not photographic variety – for a living. Jon also happened to be selling a Mac G5 that I was needing – one of those must have been fate connections that you can make on Craigs List where he had advertised the machine.
So off my dog and I went, across New hampshire into Vermont then back into New hampshire to meet one of the amazing people of New England. We took care of business ( the computer), then I dragged my gear into Jon’s studio to do some portraits of a portrait artist!
Fun doesn’t begin to describe the time – and while shooting I learned all kinds of interesting things…never thought about the fact that there are agents who specialize in political portraits, or that painted portraits are making a huge comeback as wedding gifts!
So here are some portraits of Jon – if you ever need a painted portrait, contact him through his website, http://www.mcauliffe-art.com/.
If, on the other hand, you need a photographic portrait, contact me! It’s easy, http://www.jayreiter.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, he’s no slouch when it comes to fine art painting either – don’t know his rates but his work is definately worth hanging on your wall!
