Nightmare by Robert R. Weir - Oil on Canvas

One purpose of art is to help us communicate with our subconscious; those subtle forces that drive us but only rarely fully surface. They are not always tapped in our day-to-day travels, but reveal themselves when we are pushed to the limit or when we are truly touched by art.

The face is the mirror of mind and thinking. One expression is more powerful than many pages of words. My portrait work is always taken from the live model. There is some magic that occurs when painting from life. Here we are exploring the realm of the half conscious.
