If It's Good Enough for Kate Moss...

This article mentions the rise of portraiture despite all the technological advances in photography today that threatens to make painting a lost art. But I've had a lot of fun with graphics created by scanning people's photos and playing with them in Photoshop, even though I still paint.

I'm sure that's what they thought when the camera was first invented and turn of the century artists called those who used the camera as a composition tool "cheaters."

Thanks to celebrities like Kate Moss, it is now trendy to have a portrait done.

I guess whatever helps keep art (and the artists) alive, I'm for it.
