FACE No. 79

8x10 on Raymar Panel
Click HERE to bid on this painting.
This painting is larger than most of the mug shots I've done.  With his long face a larger format was needed.  I enjoyed working on this size and want to try various size formats in the future.
A quote and a painting by Robert Henri:
Genius is not a possession of the limited few, but exists in some degree in everyone. Where there is natural growth, a full and free play of faculties, genius will manifest itself.
Robert Henri
