“The Meandering Pause”

The Meandering Pause

I spotted this gentleman at a street fair, where he was stopped in the midst of the flurry of people and activity. His quiet and lingering pose begat the inspiration for this painting. I kept the painting largely in mid-tones, with a greater emphasis and contrast on how the light and shadows animated his face, which readily aroused my curiosity about the man’s thoughts. This is what stirs me to paint people.

    This piece turned out so beautifully Terry. I love the colors you decide to push. Your comment about being curious as to his thoughts is such a neat premise for your pieces.

      Thanks, Sherry. I think it’s the emotional component, how something affects us, that always stirs us to create a painting and try to express that.
