Scary good! The ability to visualize dramatic lighting like this is not as easy as it seems. Way cool!

Linda Popple said...

I like this! As Casey has said, it is very dramatic and a little mysterious.

Celeste, you always put so much...mood...into your pieces. This is phenomenal and I find myself wondering at what this man is dealing with in life. Such intensity and drama into a portrait. Your hands are just magical!

This is a wonderful piece!I love the way he floats into focus, emerges from the indisinct background. A beautiful job done with the glasses. They seem filled with vitreous light.

I love the whole atmosphere of this painting, not least of which, as Linda says, it is rather mysterious. It makes me want to come back and look again to solve the puzzle, to fathom its meaning, .

I love the contrast of black and white in this picture. Also the guy seems intriguing, and you captured that.
