18 x20, Acrylic on Canvas.
This is a surprise piece for a good friend of mine. Since his bout with cancer, he has been unable and may never again perform, which he loved to do.

I got a pic from his daughter, (outdoors) of him holding a Bass fish. I used his head and added the body,guitar, hat and put him on stage.
I did not want the hat to shadow his face so I put the spotlight and mic behind him.
I think it's done, but am really open to any C&C and appreciate it.
Thanks for looking
Eric
PS. I still can NOT post in the critique forum...........:envy:

I am sure he will appreciate the thoughtfulness and the kindness.

Made a few very pertinent corrections as per C & C's.
Thanks to Sye, Idylbrush and TJHI.
As suggested, I added shadows on the sleeve and in the cuffs and shortened his left ear.
I darkened his face some also, we are about the same age, don't want him to think he looks younger then me. :envy:
Much better! How did I miss all that ? Duh!
