Preserve - A collaboration with McKenzie West

It was an honor to collaborate with Master painter McKenzie
West for this Artist portrait.

The backstory on the concept was derived from the resistance
to wear masks. After hearing about a devout gentlemen whose impression that
wearing a mask is against God‘s will.  I was jarred. With knowledge of this viewpoint,
the concept was born.

The process started with a base image by which McKenzie
would complete the realistic oil painted mask. When dry, with the same lighting,
the final portrait was photographed with McKenzie wearing the mask.
