    Cool straight-from-the-heart

    Please, what can it mean "a straight-from-the-heart portrait"?

    Perhaps a honest, quite sincere portrait?

    Thanks a lot

    Re: straight-from-the-heart

    I would say that it describes a portrait done with the heart felt opinion of the artist of the subject. Not necessarily 'a true to life portrait' in a physical sense.

    So, could we say, despite not being an objective portrait, that it is honest, sincere in execution, at least? Is this one the sense of "straight-from-the-heart"?


    Thank You
