Yes! Another senseless death of a valuable member of the human race. It's very depressing to discover that in terms of humanity mankind has hardly evolved at all. Great use of colour and line to express this man's integrity. A sincere and Brilliant portrait! Love it!

Fantastic portrait, David!! That green background gives a delicate environment to that portrait and bring us the beauty and serenity of his eyes!

I can see the kindness shining out of this brave man's eyes. This is a wonderful portrait... the vertical of the tie, and the brushstrokes in the green paint lead the eye directly to his face .
