Portraits | Doing Nothing Is Not Acceptable

 

 

After Orlando - I feel compelled to do some portraits of victims of gun violence.  Researching who to paint is powerful and spending 'time' with these people I chose was very moving, as doing a portrait deeply connects me with my subject. This connects me to these barbaric tragedies in some small way that pays respect,  and possibly helps to build awareness.  So much senseless loss of life.   #DoingNothingIsNotAcceptable #PortraitsOfGunViolence #guncontrolnow
