SOS!!! Send Help!!!

Send me your ideas. You request it, and I'll paint it! Look at this face. It's the look of a desperate man, with nothing to do. . . OK, I'm kidding about that. But I think it'll be fun to paint someone else's ideas.

Post them here I'll be glad to hear from you. . .

I Need Your Help!!! Send Me Ideas!!!

I can't find my brain. . . 

I need your help, my friends. I am fresh out of ideas. . . Well actually, I'm not. I just thought it might be fun to sketch or paint fan requests.

There are so many interesting faces in in this world. I couldn't possibly recall every single one of them. Post some comments on this site. Send some ideas of people I can paint. I'm sure you can give a few that never would have occurred to me. Then come back and see the final result. . .

Thank you much,

"When angry, count to four; when very angry, swear." Mark Twain

I thought it would be fun to do a Mark Twain speed painting. Normally, I'll paint for an hour and stop. . .  But I was having so much  fun with it. . . This is 2 hours. I like this one much better than my original Mark Twain painting. . . Which is a sight to behold, and a complete embarrassment. 

If anyone has a request, feel free to post them here. I'll see what I can do…

Moroccan Me 2: Beginning Color

After I finished the black and white under-painting, I filled the canvas with transparent layer of magenta. Now I've started to block in color. The color on top combines with the magenta underneath, to give it a cohesive feel. It helps the all the colors to fit in, and not stick out like a sore thumb. (now you see why I paint, and not write literature ;)

I've only worked on the color, for about an hour. I have many hours left, before I can declare this finished. So all I can do, move on and sally forth. Will post again soon.
