Spray paint on 36″ x  36″ stretched cotton canvas. Part of my collection of hyper -realistic spray paint portraits of people who come from a wide range of ages and under represented cultures. Originally a photograph of a Russian elderly woman wearing a head scarf, I chose this image because of the visceral reaction one gets when first seeing her  – when looking at her eyes and the lines of her face, even without knowing who she is, you can see that she has lived life and that she has many stories to tell, but all those stories are showing in this one image.
