Artist presents portrait to former P.M.

Story Picture
It’s not the first time he’s had his portrait painted, but the one unveiled this morning appears to have the enthusiastic approval of the subject: former Prime Minister and current Minister of Defence, George Price. The artist, former peace Corps volunteer Suzanne Kohrman, made the presentation herself at the Price Centre in Belmopan.

“This is for you. And I’m honoured to have been able to do this for you, because I think that the world should know what you looked like when you were fifty years old.

George Price, Minister of Defence

“Well thank you very much, it’s a work of art and it will occupy a prominent place in the centre. It was very good of you offer and you’ve done a good work too.”

Suzanne Kohrman

“Thank You.”

Kohrman, of Fayetteville, North Carolina, worked at the Belize Arts Council from 1999 to 2001, where she taught portrait painting. The image of Price was done in pastels.
