As I watched this man at his flea market stand, I could not help but be touched by his expressive pose. Was he sleeping? Disturbed or distraught? Wrapped in his thoughts? I tried to integrate the background into the moment I was trying to capture, and I let the many hues and overall looseness of the paints help guide the viewer to make his or her own conclusions.

    Such emotion was captured here – beautiful job, Terry – looks like another one heading for a show!

    To my eyes, he looks like hopeless and frustrated… It’s incredible how good you are with painting emotions :).
    Would be wonderful if you got a gallery exhibit! I hope it comes true, soon ;).
