I am painting a series of portraits. Close ups, eyes looking out at the spectator, oil on canvas, vertical format. The majority of the 147 Portraits are intimate studies of specific faces, based of hundreds of photographs. Some of 147 portraits are based on backlit photographs. For these portraits I asked the model to think of someone else, so the these are portraits of someone, on the of mind someone else. In the ultimate installation, the backlight portraits will be placed around and over the other portraits.
