14" x11", oil on canvas. This one was for my wife. (there seems to be a problem with the way WC has loaded this image but I suspect that you can get the gist of it)

I think this is the first figurative piece that I've seen from you. I do like it a lot!

Funny, I think of most of my work as figurative... just not naturalistic.
Thanks for looking raeburn.

Bschart very interesting crop. The effect is somewhat intimidating, like the face is entering into my personal space. A very interesting use of composition I think. A little less of the style I usually see from you but familiar and no a less satisfying experience. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Are the 2 lines 2/3's down and near the bottom organic or was that something that happened after us used the WC uploader?

Dave, Those bands are artifacts of the jpeg download. WC has been tempermental (loading most images as solid black) and after 6 tries this was the best the site could do.
Greggo, Thanks.

That's excellent. Very much 'in my face', so to speak. I love it!

Always good to see your work and this is no exception. I feel as though I am being as scrutinized as the man in the painting!

Anthony, interesting, I do not see Singer in this, the thought first to my mind was of a theologian during the Protestant Reformation.

I like the boldness of the brushstrokes, paired with the boldness of the stare, as mentioned above. It also gives me a sense of surprise, as if the viewer is the Big Brother behind the lens against which this character's face is pressed and thus we both feel exposed. Very intriguing!

Thank you. I like the idea that the painting exposes the viewer while being exposed itself.

It looked like this about a year ago.
