As I was photographing in and around downtown Las Vegas, I kept coming across a muralist creating this wonderful large portrait in a back lot far away from the glitz and glamor of LV's Strip. I was fortunate to catch him mid-afternoon as he was finishing his masterpiece. There is a sense of power - power in the riveting portrait and power in the creative process. The face appears three-dimensional, as if alive, with its creator giving life to the two-dimensional painting. There are strong narratives awaiting unexpected viewers.
