Imaginary Portraits from the 1990s

 In the 90s, I began to pare down the ingredients within each painting. The work became more economical. Each element within that economy had a specific and concise function. 

    Below are a few portraits from that period. 

   All total, including works on paper, there are close to fifty from this series.
