No wonder, Karin! I love the treatment of the hair and beard. Those peculiar green sparkle in the eyes are haunting. Very well done!

Oooo, I would be thrilled, too! I think this is one of my top 10 of your portraits so far! It's so full of life it almost sizzles on the page.

Wow! The reds and greens are amazing. His hair and skin tones are beautifully done, as well as his features. His eyes have a sadness to them.

It's been fun to watch Karen. This on is very bold and exciting. I thought of you last night when I saw this mug shot of a guy on the news from somewhere. He was missing some teeth and making this face so he looked like a bulldog.
