As Requested - 1

It only takes one request (okay, so the word 'comment' is closer to the truth, but hey... 'request' works for me!)... here are some previous work I've done.

I like the clown. His eyes remind me of someone I know.

Some background info...

1. This began as a portrait of Canadian artist Emily Carr using a photo from the web somewhere. The features were not turning out right so I dumped the idea of doing Emily and just finished it up in a haphazard way. (I think there's a tiny bit of me in there.) No projector used.

2. Sketch using a photo in a how-to art book. I like how she turned out. No projector used.

3. The title of this one is "Portrait of a Fool". It documents a personal ephiphany I had early one morning regarding a relationship. It was done in 1979. Its a self-portrait. When I started I wanted to show a real person as well as showing a 'fool' .... or clown, as it were. If I disregard the painting technique, I think it turned out well... what I wanted to express. Didn't even have a projector.

Hi CC: I only met you once (for others' reference ---- at the Seattle Airport)...as CM and I had a layover..this was years ago.

Since I only met you once I can't really conjer up exactly what you look like, but after seeing the paintings I thought they were self portraits possibly...

They are both great..Love the "feel" of them.. sandy

I thought the top one could be you, so you are in that painting. And I remember the bottom one, and I think you did a great job. I can actually remember quite well what you looked like when we met at the airport.
