    With his eyes looking up and his hand like that, he looks like he is playing a game of “Two Up” (that’s my suggestion for a title) :-)

  • Thanks Pete, its amazing the different things people see in art!

    Gosh!!!….you are so talelnted!! You have mad skills!! I love looking at your work. And I’m excited that you’re starting a new series, gives me something to look forward to! My grandfather just turned 100; so I’m dialed in geriatric-ly speaking. This piece is just flawless. So real.

  • Thanks for your great comments Kathi! Maybe I could use him as a model?

    I agree with all the sentiments expressed above! You DO have ‘mad’ skills and I love looking at your work. This is amazing Janne. The light is wonderful. Older people have so much more ‘character’ in their faces – especially elderly men. They are one of my favourite subjects. (He looks to me as if he is in a pub ordering a beer – so maybe my title would be ‘One for the Road’)!

  • Thanks Lynda your always so kind, I love how everyone sees something different in a painting.

    Excellent painting. Positioning of the subject, negative space, colours, just brilliant.
