This is Dedicated to the needy
It matters not who you are,.,…someday in your life you will need a hand.
Rich or poor,…..If you do not die young,….We will all grow old.

    this is brilliant and amazing John.. your touch of editing and painting to this ,, I am sure really creates the drama the image I feel was meant to offer.. from the blood shot eyes..to his white stubbly beard.. you gave this man soul♥ peace, love, light and inspiration my friend, you sure found it with this artistic piece, hugs♥ linmarie♥

  • Hi Linmarie,…..Love your comment,….It means a lot to me,….
    What you say about giving the man a soul is exactly what I was going for,…..It took me several hours to create the image,…..But,…with every layer I could see the mans needy emotion coming alive.
    With every hour I enjoyed doing it more,and more,….
    Thank you Linmarie,…
