Despair 9″x12″ oil on canvas $SOLD
Fresh off of the easel, last night at about 7 pm. I’m really happy with this one. It’s been a while since I painted a sad face, or one this close up, but this is what I really love to do. I’ve been attracted to faces since I was small. I have to admit, I didn’t take the reference photo for this wonderful character. I found it on Morguefile. Thanks very much to bboomerindenial for the use of this great photo.
I find my camera reads the warms a little too intense. I’m going to have to figure out how to done them down. The shadows in his hands are not that red at all.
I also have new art cards on ebay for anyone who’s interested…click below

After a tumultuous past as a goat milker, laundress, fine art major, waitress and restaurant owner, I've now downscaled to running my own Cafe/Gallery in an effort to maintain a social life and make a few bucks. I live a ridiculously idyllic existence in a fairytale village called Bella Coola on the West Coast of British Columbia with my charming musician husband, two amazingly creative children, and a dog whose favourite past time is eating rotten dead fish and rolling in poo.
In my not so spare time I love to invent healthy whole food recipes, write YA fiction, play guitar, or curl up in my favourite chair with a great book and a gigantic mug of strong black coffee, all while daydreaming of living in Ireland...

This is wonderful! I am on morguefile a lot and I recognize this one. In fact, I've done one of his photos before too!
Thanks so much, all of you!
