    He looks very much like he is contemplating what is out there, what is beyond….in his eyes I see the hope that I saw before, moments of realizing that everything is as it should be.

  • Thank you Elizabeth

    A gorgeous painting. I think Michelangelo would take notice of this one and maybe be a bit envious.

    That old saying about the eyes being the windows to the soul is very evident here…absolutely beautiful…

  • And a soul is only alone in a humans body – outside of it the soul is free and not alone. The suffering is the being separated from others.- How would he paint a face right now?
