The "Unfinished Series" was inspired from Gilbert Stuart's 'George Washington portrait'. The painting originally was not completed but has been used to represent the first president on the dollar bill. The portraits are of various people in my life that stood out as unique in features or personality. The series purpose was to also teach the viewer how the process of painting is done. the works have vine charcoal drawing to bare canvas on the outer poritions. Then 7 layers of paint; that fade into the process of adding the whites.
