Do I know you??

I did this painting titled “Portrait”.  It’s sort of strange in that it is quite difficult to decide if it’s male or female,young or old.  Just recognizable as a person. With no identity.

People in certain pictures have unmistakable identities even when you haven’t seen them in fifty years

Some I’ve never met but have come to know them very well by painting them

Werner Heisenberg

Sometimes the portrait reflects the personality of the person

Some are hidden from identification

While other escape our notice

Even in a quick sketch the human form is the most interesting subject

and the variety endless

    Robert, how I agree with you. When on my daily subway rides I am fascinated by the faces that surround me. I have no need of an electronic device for diversion!

    Happy New Year to you! xo
