After I finshed preparing for the State Fair I was sort of like a ballon deflating. I felt a strong need to take a rest and regroup. Now, like a bad penny, I’m back, a little shinier after spending several weeks reading, thinking and resting. I am ready to get back to painting, drawing and doodling. I started by immersing myself in faces. My old friends know that I love to find a face that fascinates me and then I change it to make it my own. I’ve noticed that it is usually the eyes that hook me. I put my toe back in the water and here’s the result…a face depraved and with the potential for evil. Wonder what that means!

Gangsta Man

The drawing was done with a set of warm gray markers and is about 10″ X 12″. I made the eyes green. I wanted them to glint like emeralds.

    A wonderful and fascinating face. What is going on in his mind, I wonder.

    What an expressive face. I though “uh oh” about him even before I read your description. LOL Maybe it was the green eyes.

    I love this, Linda! I also like your description of the eyes being dominant in what you see while you form your faces. I like the shapes and shadow to this…. He speaks!
