40 Years

Commission. Graphite. 10 hours. Please forgive the cluttered composition, it was at the strong wish of the client that ALL the various happinesses of this man be displayed. Desipite my artistic misgivings (I did at least talk her out of showing Clint Eastwood) this resulting piece is what made her very happy, which ultimately made me happy, too. ^__~

Beautifully done. WIth what you had to work with, I think you handled the composition just fine. It still holds balance and the contrasting negative and positive spaces are just right. :) Outstanding work!
