Lee Mullican, Portrait

Executed with the striated marks for which Lee Mullican is known this abstract portrait is in green, blue and white. The marks, created using a palette knife, are formed so that the head, eyes, nose and mouth of an ambiguous figure are apparent. This abstract painting uses ancient mark-making techniques with a unique personal vision.
