Since 2014 I have been working on a series of large scale face portraits. So far I have six paintings in this series, and my goal is to show them all together once I have completed seven or eight. With each painting, my style has evolved and, I believe, matured. My paintings have become thicker and more layered, and reveal more depth. Also, whereas my first painting in the series took 4 1/2 months, my most recent painting took me about a year to complete. Currently, I prefer not to use conventional, straight-on photographs of my paintings, as the lens distorts the faces and the photographs don't show scale.
