Alice Neel: ‘Collector of Souls’

“I would say she was looking at two ghetto children from uptown and bringing out the beauty in us.”
[Jeff Neal, on left in the portrait with brother Toby.]

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
