Michael - retired social worker from Busselton, now an aspiring artist

I really seemed to catch Michael off guard when I asked him to sit for me for a portrait. A quiet spoken gentleman, he said he barely ever comes to the city, and that it was really unexpected to have such a personal experience here.

"Looking for inspirations / vision" ... Art Gallery of WA. Van Gogh, Dali and Beyond. 20 July 2013
