This is Theodor, or as most know him... Dr. Seuss. I utilized the colors of his children's books as the colors of his portrait.
My abstracted portraits, under the title, “Fading Identities,” is an homage to people of our past and present. Every one of these individuals helped create the world to how it is today. You might question the title, “Fading Identities” as the opposite of a homage, due to the verb fading, but in reality, as these paintings exude.. The actual identity of each individual might visually fade over time from our memories, but there are still fragments and pieces of each that we always tend to remember, even if it is just a silhouette of the whole. This piece is on a birch panel, raised 1 1/2", titled, signed and dated on the back. All paints used are Golden Paint and Liquitex Professional acrylics. Reason I mention this, is because I produce my work to last the test of time through using only the highest quality of materials.
