It looks good. Question... I was wondering if there is detail in the black of the man's hair. On the screen it reads "solid" so it kind of feels like a "hole"...

Lots of loose strokes. :)

lol... no, Barb, there are actually blues, purples, and a bit of a burgundy color in there! But it does look as you said... maybe that's what's been bugging me about it! Thanks!

Thank you, Don!

Don, I know it can be challenging doing any commissions and working from photos -vs- life.

Watch too that you don't have too much texture (you'll have to do this in person). We want the viewer to have a place to rest their eyes... just not sink in... Barb

Good point about the too much texture... I hadn't thought about that. Thank you, Barb!
