The following 5 paintings are from the series "portraits of unknown people" From the beginning of my practice when ever I wanted to just relax I would draw or paint a little piece often just the bust of a person. People often have mused that they seem like real people and I have noticed that they never look the same. (some artists always draw or paint the same looking person over and over). So one day I quipted to a visitor that they are portraits of unknown people. They chuckled, so it became the name of the series. These 5 have been done since starting up my new studio in early December, 2007.
