I immediately was able to tell that tall, dark and handsome man was you. I love the way you painted that leather chair also. Awesome!

Good one David. Love the pose,and the darks against the slick leather, the hand and and the raw canvas in the background. Very expressive.

David, I love this piece. I cannot explain why, but this reminds me of Norman Rockwell's work. Love that leather chair; what a bargain!

Dana Cooper said...

Great piece David! By isolating the chair and figure it has a very solitary and comfortable feel.

Edward Burton said...

Wonderful piece with just the right amount of detail.

Beautiful painting David. I love the simple warm background and the comfortable feel of this.

Love this David! The composition is so good...I like the way you isolated the subject. Gives it a sense of his being very absorbed in his book. I agree with Shelia. Looks like a self-portrait. Very well done!
