secretly the best portrait i've ever done

Hamid's Family

This is a family portrait rife with nostalgia.  The central figure is Hamid, my cousin and the patron of this piece.  He is now in his thirties living in America, but when he was young and in Iran his fondest childhood memories were on the road with his family.  We see Mom, Dad, Hamid, his Brother, Grandmother in the backseat and Hamid's pet chicken.  The chicken traveled with them.  This piece is based on a series of snapshots from the late 70's to early 80's.
