This project extends from 2018 to 2019. The face is a unique challenge because there is so much that is expressed in it: psychology, identity, humanity. To get over the hesitation I often experienced as I approached that part of an image, I set a goal of painting 35 portraits in three or six hours, maximum. To date, 21 of the 35 are complete. The project may extend into 2020. Each portrait is roughly 19 x 12″, oil on paper, limited palettes.
