Short People 5'1'' 8x10 oil on canvas

I was looking at Karin Juricks series called Busted where she paints folks that have been arrested and when I went to my local mug shot catalog I noticed that you could sort them by height so hence a painting called Short People perhaps a series followed by  Tall People (can you guess the arrangement?)

I love this, and look forward to seeing the rest of this series. It's a unique and very creative perspective!

This cracked me up when I saw this & read the title (being all of 5'2" myself). Nice work on the face - I'm new to portraits & find them so overwhelming. You did a great job - looking forward to seeing more of these.

So where in the world did you get a mug shot catalog David? I find this whole subject matter fascinating and can't wait to see where it will lead you.
