Here & Now

Here & Now

I spent a couple of hours at a local homeless shelter. I was taking reference images for a portrait project, and this gentleman offered to sit for me.

Shy and quiet, courteous and polite. He had the most wonderful expressive milky green & brown eyes, so I chose to crop his face harshly to focus on his expression.

It could equally be one of sadness...or hope.

Proceeds from the sale of this painting will be donated to Shekinah, Plymouth.

Painted on a small canvas board, it is mounted onto a white mount with a simple white wood frame.
