Palmer’s Faces have been a cherished favorite by his collectors since the onset of his career. During the mid-2000’s the style was in such demand that a price increase of $1,000 above the standard retail for the size was incorporated on each painting. Faces are most often vibrant and forward-facing. Many observers have remarked that the eyes seem to peer right through them. The confident brushstrokes on Faces often surround a rigid face and square jaw. Palmer often receives the question if the Face represents an actual person. Is it your husband? Is it you? Palmer always has an amazing way of not answering these inquiries.
