Inspired by Facial Hair

Greetings! Today's post features a recent painting entitled "A Man for All Seasons" (2009, acrylic on 16" x 20" canvas).

It began with a mental image of a spiky goatee, which then evolved into the idea of seasons, or warmer and cooler areas, revolving around a central figure. I also wanted to create a finished work quickly; it took me less than forty-eight hours from start to finish (although my initial goal was to complete the piece in less than twenty-four hours).

It's been completed for a week or two, but I only got around to photographing it last night.
