The Family Crest Series is a collaborative painting project
between Rafael and families, centered around guided family art lessons and sessions. The Parker Family piece, is 4 custom sized canvases, that total to 6.5' x 17' when put together. Each of the four kids in the family had their own panel, which reads the family name "Parker" when seen in its reflection.
After the family painting sessions, Rafael works intimately with the family to create a custom work of art, representative of the family. Here, the Parkers of Hermosa, hard at work as a family.
A work in progress - Rafael shoots photography of the process, which can be made into a coffee table book to go alongside the painting.
