You are so blessed! Lovely daughters, wonderful son.
I'd rank this as one of your better paintings. It tells us a lot about the subject.. his mood, his dreams, his fears, his past. A good portrait has to tell us more about the subject than what he looks like, and this one does.
He could be any man dealing with all the angst of that age. He has me thinking of that time for myself.
Whatever that thing is above his head, I like it. It brings us back to him.
Technically things have a way of lining up if we get the emotional side of it right. No doubt here tho, you nailed this one, and you have a beautiful painting.
As always, Corby is right, and it needs more variety in values but that might be the flash.
I'd frame this one, T.
