Social Portrait Series by Mark Stephenson

I’m absolutely thrilled to be included in my friend and former colleague,  Mark Stephenson’s project; Social Portraits. The Social Portraits project is an ever growing collection of small 11 inch square portrait paintings based on people’s social media profile photos. Mark’s project seeks to create an online community and dialogue around the painted representations of participants digital profiles. He chose a picture of me last summer that I posted to Instagram and used as my Facebook profile photo for quite some time. Here is the original version digital in comparison to oil version:

At some point Mark plans on bringing together those whom he painted for a vernissage to provide the opportunity for everyone to meet each other. Can’t wait to meet the others included in the series!
