My Latest painting.

well I have finally gotten my latest painting done.  It's a portrait of a famous author.  I hope you can tell who it is.  Portraits are elusive paintings that can change with the stroke of the brush from looking just like the subject to nothing like them.

Da Vinci carried the Mona Lisa around for years obsessing on the painting.  He was still working on it at the time of his death.

Well anyway, that said I may well be tweaking with this painting for a few more weeks, doing little fine tunings like defining an edge or softening some feature.
But I got the canvas covered with paint.

It's 24"wide by 18"high painted on canvas board in acrylics and transparent airbrush paints an took about twenty hours to get to this point.  Framed as shown.
Please let me know what you think of it.

I sent this to Ms. Rice a few hours ago as i said in would so she got to see it before anyone else.  I hope she likes it but may not respond to my email.
