At Open Studios, someone asked me why I don’t paint faces on my figures, which caused me to pause and question myself, “Do I paint faces?”
Of course I do! They stare down at me from the paintings on my walls. My figures–and faces–have become more abstracted over the last several years, but facial expressions and body gestures remain of utmost importance. It’s a challenge to see how far I can distill things down while still retaining the humanness of the figure.
Here are some (of many) faces. You can click on the thumbnail to open the complete image.
