One to laugh and one to cry
Meet the artwork of Jeff Huntington. When he was an 8 year old boy, his father took him to art classes and he fell in love with it, at first painting Star Wars characters. Many years later his father got Alzheimer's. His moods would change instantly and dramatically. And Jeff wanted to capture it, but just one image would not do. What resulted is the fifth picture. This gave thought to the idea of people's faces being so changeable, how could you capture their true spirit with just one photo? People are so much more than just a single image. That led to the idea of his paintings of multiple views of a single subject. He worked from photos of friends and family. What are your thoughts? His paintings are very popular and in many galleries.Of course I had to try this for myself, though my creations are just repeats of the same image. Yikes, I think one of me is enough!
All photos of me are by me. The rest are taken from the newspaper by me or from the web.
“Within the fire were what looked like four creatures vibrant with life. Each had the form of a human being, but each also had four faces and four wings…On all four sides under their wings they had human hands. All four had both faces and wings, with the wings touching one another. They turned neither one way nor the other; they went straight forward.”
