Grumpy Old Man Number 1. Oil.

Grumpy Old Man Number 1.
Oil. 24x30in. ca. 2015.

A painting using the artist as a model. Created from a photograph taken by the artist. There are small clumps of oil paint that you can see in the background, as well as on the figure. Those are remnants from the painting this used to be. Like many artists throughout history, I sometimes paint over older paintings. I liked the texture for this piece, so I left the clumps.
