    Very nice indeed. Love the split colors in the background and its instantly recognizable as John Lennon, even from the thumbnail.

    Oh, I know all right! In fact you did an excellent job…captured his likeness very well. Imagine…..if he were still alive….what kind of music would he be making today…..

  • the anniversary of his death was the 8th of this month… he is truly missed… that’s for sure!! barb

    Hey B, don’t be so hard on yourself. It’s obvious who it is and you’ve done a great job. Lovely color usage and you have captured his ‘essence’ which is what portraiture is all about. Not everyone has to create paintings that look like photos (thank goodness!!!) XHX

  • well, if i did have to create paintings that looked exactly like the photos.. i wouldn’t be painting!! thanks so much my dear friend… always appreciate your comments.. barb
