ARTIST’S STATEMENT of Ronald Jones aka RJ

Some of these faces appeared to me unbidden, as though inviting themselves on the painting surface to truly exist as real beings . Others were a vent for a personal mood or feeling I felt could best be captured in the often telling expressions of a physiognomy. All the portraits are negotiable in price if you  are interested in collecting one or several of these. I accept PayPal (other payment methods available on inquiry). The portraits come unmatted and unframed and are shipped via UPS. There is no extra charge for shipping. My email contact is Thank you for visiting the Imaginary Portrait gallery.
