Image Threads

Many of the people who populate my canvases keep reappearing in different guises. This small painting (7"x 5") above is called "Constance." I named it after a wonderful woman who commissioned a portrait of Winston Churchill for a birthday present. Giclees are available. The face made a huge impression on me, and will populate several future paintings.

The face of Constance reappeared in the 5'x3' painting below. Named "Make.Believe", the acrylic painting resembles a large photograph with its white borders. Constance makes another appearance in the recent 12"x9" study above. Called "Masking", the piece explores "trying on" different identities.
