janeensoilworks.com Janeen Meyer-JohansonHi anyone looking, if anyone is looking. Haha. My first difficulty with this one was finding a photo of Keith that I could look at for awhile without feeling ill. He’s just so damn ugly. (Sorry Keith) BUT, he’s got something. Therefore, the global draw. Were I to know him, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind my jabbing his looks as long as I shared a scotch with him. I would then take my own photo BUT as he’s not a personal friend, ;-P, I have to use something.
The next was getting him to look that crinkly Keith, that dark side even though I used a fairly kind photo of him. That being said, I tend to subconsciously soften the features making my rockers a bit gentler than they probably are. Probably comes from the fact that I am more of a gentle soul and it comes out in the paintings.  This could actually be a blessing were people to begin asking for commissions! I am kind! 😀
Speaking of that, please check out my new page on commissions for Christmas gift ideas, especially portraits. And most especially, my black and white work, as I really do like these.  Enough jabbering, hope you enjoy Keith…
