"100 Faces, No. 79"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite

Before I run off to work I'll post this new guy. We look at some people and think 'they look like a cartoon' - this man was one of them. I painted him three times. It was a struggle. The paintings just looked like an old most-wanted drawing, something out of the wild, wild west.

I know it's a mug shot.
I can appreciate that his straight-on pose and round little nose might have tended toward the cartoon-like.
But when I looked at your painting, I thought, "this looks like a really nice guy."
So I think you painted him likable and real.
