I like the effect! Did you use oil sticks? Very dramatic.

Very good portrait

Hi again Celeste!... Like the expressive quality in both of your last pieces. Rigourous brushwork is highly evocative ...and always emotionally charged!

Dark?....Sad??? Why apologize? One emotion cannot exist.. or be appreciated.. with the presence of the other. In sculpture... for example... form would not exist ...except that light and dark combine to reveal form and volume!

Good stuff!

Good painting!
Bruce
