Portrait of Poet, Megan O'Reilly

Oil on wood panel.

Here's what Vallen had to say about his oil painting:

"Through a mutual acquaintance, I met Megan O'Reilly, Assistant Editor of Rattle (one of the nation's premiere poetry magazines), and she consented to my painting her likeness. With the portrait I hoped to capture, not just the countenance of a working poet in Los Angeles, but the visage of a modern day American writer going against the grain."
