Digital Paintings Give Old Photographs New Life

One of my favorite past time is spending hours in vintage stores or thrift stores that have boxes of old photographs. One of the owners of a vintage shop told me that he buys the contents of the homes of the deceased. I remember looking through a box; it had photo's of a person's full life, from the day he was born to his last day lying in his casket. I found it fascinating and strange. I created digital paintings from the three photographs below that were from the same box.
