For a change of pace, I will return to portraits of my brother Mike for a while. He is autistic, low functioning and nonverbal. Mike currently lives in a geriatric group home back east. I took photos of him for many years; since I moved away I’ve been painting compositions related to my experience with him. Below is the second of my current series of portraits of Mike.
I have no idea how long I will be able to continue this series, as it is a bit emotionally draining.
