Very important:- Viewing a painted portrait for the first time — as I have witnessed many times in my career — can be "an alarming experience." What one is accustomed to seeing reflected in photography has now been interpreted by me, the painter, in brush strokes of varying angles, color, length, thickness, value, texture and placement — and other qualities too mysterious for words. This is the heart of impressionism.
Additionally there is the added fact that virtually everyone "knows their own face backwards." This is from almost exclusively seeing your own reflection in the mirror every day. It is how you know you, but not how others do, since no one has a perfectly symmetrical face. This is why, for example, you may not like a photograph of you that others tell you is very flattering.
