This is a grisaille painting done with just two colors of paint. It was a interesting challenge controlling the lights and the darks and doing a face familiar to most people. This is oils on a canvas panel and would need a frame.
There's a compulsion to interpret visual moments for this painter. The hope is that a special moment can somehow be preserved forever. I love working in oil paints. They are challenging and forgiving at the same time. Color, texture and light are the main components that I try to give center stage. And then sometimes I just paint a simple painting without much thought at all. It's all creative process.
