I started painting 24" X 18" portraits to demonstrate oil painting techniques for my students at College of San Mateo. Each semester I did a new painting, and I got the idea to do 99 portraits as a joke. The 100th would be a silver and gold silhouette. Most of the portraits so far are of people who live and/or work in my Oakland neighborhood. Many of them hang out at Merchant's Saloon.
