Michael Caterina South Bend Tribune
Artist was a great example of turning a cluttered scene into a real environmental portrait that really told a story. Neighbor turned what we can assume was "reporter talking to..." into great texture and lighting. YWCA was a great idea but fell short in a few areas of execution, lighting was great but horizontal crop was awkward especially when it cut some of her hair and while we get what you were going with in composition we think it may have worked better to have her in front of the painting with that as the background.
