Dickens Inspired Mugshots

I thought this guy really looked like he'd be cast for a Charles Dickens story - a young, street-smart, working-class character.

Meanwhile..... I'm painting every day, not even taking time to photograph the finished pieces. Best to stick to the momentum for now. I've got a solo show in late-April, lots of catching up to do with replacing those blank spots on the gallery walls. You'll see more, very soon.

Love the colors in this. Great job on the hair, too. And, as always, you got a great expression.
