In 2013, I wanted to explore Stephen Harper as my subject again.  This time I wanted his portrait to disturb the viewer with less shock then the original series of six that included three nudes.

His image is disturbing to most already, so I presented my viewers with this regal but half exposed more handsome half smile gaze staring you down from a elevated height.

Presented in the collective exhibition "Reflections" in 2013, viewers were amused, disgusted, and left unsure whether my motivation was for or against him.

Oh, Stephen #2
