This painting is a comment on the process of ivory tower based decision making in vogue in our country... I completed this last night.

VERY KEWL! You did that? Do you do paintings in person, like having a model or from a photo? Anyhoo, great work!

Wow - not sure what the title actually means. It looks like the whole painting has drops of blood running down. The face is there, but not specifically distinguishable. Very eerie - yes, I think you accomplished what you set out to do.

Thank you, Angela.

Sunflower,
Are you sure you cannot recognize this person? Look closely...

Sunflower Optimism said...

Oh, no! I see it! The glasses help.

But I still say not very distinguishable - maybe meant to be that way, as the man is an amalgam of what others want him to say - he does not have an original thought.

Sunflower - looks like you got it... I had meant it to be a little diffuse and spaced out... (like you say - like the man himself)...
