WOW! I really feel like since I started coming to your blog that your portraits are evolving and becoming more powerful.

Thank you, Corrine. That is a compliment I will remember.

jafabrit is right. You are really getting somewhere new - not somewhere better exactly, but somewhere more complex and evocative. The painting is named after a demon, but to me this person is intensely sympathetic, tragic, pained - like he regrets who he is. It's good stuff, Sunil.

Cicada,
Belphegor was the demon of sloth and this was a first in a series of paintings that I had planned on the vices...
For some reason I saw sloth there rather than world-weariness...

Thank you for your words and good to hear from you.
