“Gravitas”

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.

    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 ;).
