Making its first public appearance: “Missing Partial Ear Self-Portrait of Van Gogh: Hommage à Van Gogh”.
One of these I already posted as finished, but I had a codicil that as I developed my skills in new areas, I’d go back and tinker with it. I also wanted to work on a series, in order to have a better chance of getting ANY recognition from the art world, but, I find […]
To me the defining characteristic about trump is the front lock of hair, which is like the bill of a baseball cap. Sometimes I do caricatures, and when I do the object is to reduce the subject to the minimum number of marks while suggesting the personality. I know, I know, I’m really late to […]

When aspiring art demigods boldly declared […]
Hi Folks. This was a “speed painting”, but I liked it well enough so touched it up a bit to add it to my gallery. It’s not my normal style, or I should say not really in the range of what I’ve already done, so adds a bit more eclecticism. I may never do anything […]
