Faces Gallery

I love to paint faces. Not portraits. Faces. I love to paint emotion and nothing describes emotion like a face. I play with emotion and experiment with different emotions and challenge myself to express something new and wild.

My most successful face series are of buddha images. These depart from my wildest faces most significantly. I think they reflect my desire to go deeper rather than just farther. They represent my maturity and growing comfort with subtlety and my continued effort to express more than just what is on the surface but just more quietly.

Of course, however, I must start off with the most beautiful and powerful painting I have ever painted, "Face Inside". This is a magical expression of my inner guide, my mentor, master and menace, who showed himself to me one day in this painting...
