Tackling a Portrait

portrait sliceI am fairly sure that I have finished a portrait project for a Blue Pig Gallery Show which opens on January 22, 2010. The assignment was to create a portrait of a local community leader/personality in the artist’s usual medium. I chose Dave Fishell, a historian and story-teller who is well known in Grand Junction for his lively presentations. I wanted to use old photos and images to collage his portrait in sepia tones. Dave kindly allowed me to use his book, The Grand Heritage – A Photographic History of Grand Junction, for much of the source material for this collage. I am including only a small slice of it in this post, so as not to spoil the opening exhibit.
