Speed portraits of homelessness

It is very fulfilling to paint homeless people. Their extreme lives are exposed on their faces. Each of these paintings took about 90 minutes, and are on 6 inch x 6 inch canvases. I wasn’t trying to capture their likeness, yet the paintings still captured their story.
