Forgotten Series

                                      The Forgotten.... brings into the light, those whom have been                                             forgotten by time or place.

                                      "The concept behind this series stems from 6 years of Friday                                           visits to the local auction house in search of frames. Some of these frames were empty, while others held landscapes, still lifes or portraits. When my bid won a 3.5'x 5' framed painting of a soldier I felt disrespectful discarding his image and he was placed as guardian of our garage. As the canvas collection grew, I started thinking of the time, care and love put into these portraits of people I will never know in person or by name.
These portraits have brush strokes and eraser marks where time and attention was given to the subject. One particular suited gentleman had two portraits painted with 10-20 years in between. I won both at auctions, wanting the frames, not realizing I had a growing inventory of this particular subject.

All of these portraits are striking in their own way. While I will never know their backstory, I can at least give them one last spot-light and bring attention to someone who at one point was surely adored." Wheaton Mahoney

The Forgotten Series was featured in the April 2023 MEDIUM FORMAT Magazine
