"100 Faces, No. 98"

4 x 4"
oil on masonite

You can see the emerald-green ground color I started on - I had no plans to leave so much of it revealed, but when I got to this point, I loved it, as is. It adds a stern, somewhat graphic, somewhat of a wood-cut effect - I think it works well with the woman.

The tabletop easels sold out again - I assure those who are wanting their own - this is an ongoing project and more will be available as they are completed.

The green reminds me of Kees van Dongen

It is a great peeking through. I think all colors can work as background if you paint the right colors around it.

This has a fabulous contemporary feel to it, very different and edgy. Love it!

I am going to congratulate you on your 100 faces achievement now because I am sure you will get a million comments when two more are completed. Also congrats on the easels...well done. I am looking forward to seeing you in NYC in May...can't wait!

Hi Karen,

Good call stopping when you did!

I'm late in wishing you well now that you have become a full time painter. Congratulations and may this next chapter in your life be the best one yet.
