I did this portrait for several reasons, not the least of which is that I love it.
But I did take a few liberties, dialing up the chiaroscuro and altering colours.
Mainly I've been battling the heat and humidity with my other projects, so decided to park myself in front of a fan and paint something.
Acrylic on canvas. About 30.5" x 26.5" incl.frame
Update: I have decided to keep this one for the time-being.
It may be up for sale again one day.(?)
