"100 Faces, No. 14"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite
sold

I finished the final painting that was just accepted in the Charleston Art Auction - I'm so very happy with it. Took me the better part of three days, which you may know is unusual.

So a good way to start a new day. And this guy was the first on my easel, loose and liberating - painted on a bright-red ground for some intensity.

Ah. Like this painting immensely. The red is so vibrant, and the way it reflects in his features. Smashing, smashing painting.

Love how bold this one is.

Wow, intense is the word. Love the red background, this may well be my favorite of the series. I definitely wouldn't want to meet this character in a dark alley somewhere.

I love your work, and your comments; very inspiring...
Your newest project, the 100 Faces, just makes me shake my head in admiration.. I agree about the similarity to Lucien Freud, I thought so right away...looking forward to getting your paintings in my inbox.
