portrait

A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant.  The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of a person...

Two original photos (a self-portrait and a vintage Desoto automobile) collaged together and topped with a delicious texture.  I love collecting photos of the vintage cars owned by Truly Nolan!
