Portrait Project 2 & 3

Here are the second and third in the series of portraits inspired by Rose Frantzen's portrait project in 2009. By the way, there is a new edition of the book describing her series, and it is so incredibly worthwhile not only for the paintings, but also for her descriptions of the meaning that the work took on for her. In these difficult times, portrait painting makes me feel more connected than anything else to my fellow humans.
