40 small Christ Portraits

40 small Christ Portraits

Invitation to a Show: 40 small Christ Portraits

I’ve done a lot of paintings of the face of Christ over the years, and I’ve noticed how much I love them during the early stages–while the image is still abstract and with little detail.  And so, this time around, I resolved to control myself and resist the urge to push these paintings too far. They are sketches in paint.  They are color studies.  And yet to me they are as complete as any finished painting.  They are a simple statement. If you love simplicity, you will hopefully love these paintings.
