"200 Faces, No. 146"

4 x 4"
oil on panel

I took a break today from the February show paintings - making great progress.  Largely in part to binge-watching Breaking Bad while painting, which kept me seated all day long.  Great ending by the way.  

This new addition to my ongoing series BUST-ED shows one of my visual obsessions - a face emerging from the dark.

These paintings just get better and better and all in the space of 4" square! I've been such a fan of all your work since I first found you years ago. Keep up the fabulous work!

Do you say'Snap' when two people do the same thing at the same time?

I've just started 'faces emerging from a dark background.' But as I've only ever painted 5 portraits I have a long way to go to catch your 146.

Great painting btw

The values and skin tones on this are very elegant and excellent. Beautiful work.
