the rectangular surfaces stream and hover together and press forward against the world forming an image of a persistent person.

Sophie - you have excelled in yet another medium. Lovely portrait and it captures so much of his personality in every stroke and crease.

Can't say enough great things about this. YOu are truly on a roll.

There is just as much art in what JerryW said, as this beautiful painting of yours. (I would ask him if it would be ok to write that on the back of it!)
Lovely work...(both of you!)

You've captured a lot of emotion. I'm fascinated by the way you conveyed the lines in his face.....(colors, brush strokes). Reminds me of a Norman Mailer character.
