From an old family photo that must have been from the 1940s, this is my second cousin. I couldn’t tell if he was having a good time or if the camera happened to have caught him in an ambiguous expression; but that was the moment I wanted to capture in this painting. The disunion between being in masquerade at a party and the look on his face seemed worth trying to convey. This painting exhibited at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences National Juried Competition: Works on Paper, 2013.
