The Idea

Large Scale Portraits of people with a lot of life experience that integrate the actual words of their stories into the lines and wrinkles of their faces.

Thinking, thinking....

Thinking about the sizes... 4 feet by 5 feet each? hmmmmm......

Thinking about the technique for the text. After weighing the options, I'm going with sgraffito- drawing(or in this case- writing) into wet oil paint with the other end of a paint brush. I think it will really enhance the texture of the wrinkles and keep the text nice and subtle..... yes...... That will work.

Still thinking about speakers. Would the quiet murmur of the interviews be overkill or add interest? I still don't know about that one.

That's all the thinking I can do for now.
