Mr ... Nooo, can't say

I really cannot disclose the subject. It was fun to paint loosely for this one.

A client with a sense of humour - a Van Gogh tie.

Re: Mr ... Nooo, can't say

Thanks, Carol. I was a bit worried about the loose treatment, but had a phone call from the client (the Secretary General - no, not that one ) saying he liked how I captured John's character, yet I still had a "painting". I was happy.

Thanks, Loretta. I'm glad the colours look OK. These images look completely different on two Macs.
