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.

Today, I interviewed Bill Lawson, aged 99. We started with some photos and then got our 2 hour interview underway. This man has led a very interesting and touching life. It was such a pleasure to spend the afternoon with him. I'm not sure yet which of these photos to use for the painting. The first or the second, I think...Probably the second.
