Mike Portrait No.2, June 2017

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.

Watercolor: Abstract - Mike Portrait #2 061917

Portrait #2, June 2017 Series
9″x12″ 140# Cold Pressed Watercolor Block

I have no idea how long I will be able to continue this series, as it is a bit emotionally draining.

Interested readers may see a selection of other portraits in these posts:  Abstract Portrait of Mike, Evolution of a Portrait Series, Dark-Eyed Mike #1, Paintings from Last Visit with Mike.
