Homeless Series

The homeless series of paintings was my way of addressing the bleak situation of being homeless. The isolation and helplessness that someone who is homeless must be feeling is unfathomable. I chose to paint in monochromatic tones as it helped to convey what I was feeling when dealing with someone who was homeless. How can I help without insulting them further and was I helping or was it my own feeling of helplessness that was holding me back. I can’t imagine that someone would be homeless by choice but what do I know, I’m only guessing.
