Oil on canvas, 8x10
For reasons I do not understand, painting humans terrifies me. Dogs, fine. Cats, fine. Landscapes, fine.
Move toward buildings, and I start to get a little antsy; humans? Yikes! The one I've done that I like is from the back, "Fat Guy at the Diner," and I do love that one.
But there's a guy named Rick who has the most amazing face, and one day, I got the courage up to ask him if I could photograph him, in hopes of trying a painting.
So here it is. And actually, it kind of looks like him, and I kind of like it. It might take me another year to try another human, but you have to start somewhere.
