When you make a portrait

to Hans Holbein
Dear Mr. Holbein,
I know you since I was a little girl. The king, the important people with the beautiful clothes and discreet hands you painted are present in my memory. You were a traveler, searching for your best public.
Nearly every time I am making a portrait at one or more moments think of you.
Your blue greens inspire me and your wish to translate the character of the sitter.
Thanks for the inspiration,
an admirer.
