Roger

6 x 6
oil on panel

I'm really happy with this little portrait of our friend Roger - there was a lot of great stuff to work with.  I loved all the light and shadows on his very expressive face, and expected to have some problems pulling it off but it was maybe one of the funnest paintings I've ever done. Roger is an outdoors guy, a runner and cyclist as well as a real humanitarian.

  3. Terri-I love it! I've only met Roger a couple of times, but I'd say you really captured his character-well done!

  4. Terri, you did a great job on this one. The way his collar goes around and the color of the background contribute nicely to the portrait.
