.6 hour painting.



.I have been out of town every weekend and finally I had a night to paint. So last Friday, with a glass of wine in hand (or three..hehe), I completed this one in 6 or 7 hours. I was in the zone.
.His hand is just hanging out there, not sure what that is all about, but one day I'll get these arms and hands right. BUT, at the same time, I like the ackwardness of it. Is he going to tap on the glass or does his head cocked to the right and arm out mean he is getting ready to wave at me?!

i love the depth and warm colors of your work. i really like the mystery in the features of your subjects. i think he's going to tap you on the shoulder.

wine is a great motivator--especially the reds...

Hello Milly,

When I saw this I said 'wow' out loud. I love your colors and movement and light in his chest is wonderful!

IWow! This piece is amazingly beautiful!
I love the big blue splash at the back. Also loving the gesture you set on his face and face.
Just so in tune!
Take care Milly:)

I like the fact that it's a little unsettled. Wonder what would have happened with four glasses!

I like it. He seems coming from outer space..., he, he.

Aah, his eyes are calm, but there's so much passion in that red! And that curious hand -- it's actually quite brilliant. Keep 'em guessing, like the Mona Lisa. I love art that makes you think and wonder.
