The fun part of painting portraits that don't have to resemble anyone in particular is that I end up inventing my own cast of characters. I stop when they seem like interesting people. Maybe the process is a little like that of a novelist imagining a fictional person into being.
As this painting developed I began to think this girl's face looked a little like many of the women in Renoir's paintings--a certain kind of puffy-cheeked poutiness. Then someone said she/he looked like Val Kilmer, and my whole consciousness of the painting shifted. I like that nebulous quality, though--gives one room to dream.
