The Forgotten.… brings into the light, those whom have been forgotten by time or place.
The concept behind this series stems from 6 years of Friday visits to the local auction house
in search of frames. Some of these frames were empty, while others held landscapes, still lifes
or portraits. When my bid won a 3.5'x 5' framed painting of a soldier I felt disrespectful discarding his image and he was placed as guardian of our garage. As the canvas collection grew, I started thinking of the time, care and love put into these portraits of people I will never know in person or in name.
I do know they were loved. These portraits have brush strokes and eraser marks where time and attention was given to the subject.
