  7. Hey, Ramesh, Thanks for the words of encouragement you left for me. We share an appreciation for the intimate portrait. The power of this piece is in it's concise focus...a simple smile. Lovely.

  8. Another beautiful expressive portrait. Its interesting how he is looking away from the viewer, and one wonders what is capturing such a gentle look. I like the dark value applied loosely.
    Thanks for your comments on my recent paintings. You should submit to the contest! Its always worth a try, especially if you like the subject.

  9. Wonderfully expressive! The eyes in your drawing are always filled with such great depth. Love the way you let the background drip down the surface. Also, wonderful contrast in light and shadow!
