Those anonymous family photos

art, recent

Looking through all my family photos. I am always attracted to the ones which present anonymous people, shadowy figures, and unknown settings. Their anonymity is a challenge and a mystery.

I have pulled some of these photos and plan on painting them in the next few weeks.

 

We are all passengers who will be lost in time.

We are dying from the moment we are born.

These photos somehow remind me of this.

Lately I have been painting these emotionally charged watercolors. For the past couple of years I have been doing self portraits which sort of serve as place holders in time. They mark the events in my life with my son. They show me where I have been and where I am. They serve as a visual diary.
