this may be hard to believe, but i started out sketching Bruce Springsteen's lips from an old Rolling Stone cover, i love that underbite. male lips done in charcoal on paper turned into pink in oil on canvas. i really never know how things are going to turn out. it works well for my personality.
the last pic shows the small chunky canvas.....a 4 in square gallery wrapped canvas with 1.5 in depth.
artist grade oil paints, no mediums for faster drying so it will be a bit before i can glaze.
