Portrait of Bob Dylan, 12x16", oil on wood panel. I had five older siblings who shaped my musical taste. Dylan was the first, and still the most memorable, singer-songwriter in my life. Our entire family knew the words to his songs by heart. I don't know who the photographer was who posed a young Dylan in this smart suit and white shirt. In the original photo his hair was shorter. For the face, I used a later photo* of him with tousled hair. His hair, clothes and background are painted with a knife while his face is painted with a brush. I mixed a touch of Prussian blue into the black that is most noticeable in his eyes.*Comment if you know the name of the photographer so I can the reference.
Whether painting a person or a teapot, the goal is holding the viewer's attention. In this busy world it takes something remarkable to stop us in our tracks. That could be an event, like a surprising diagnosis or the unexpected death of a close friend. These events give us time to pause and reflect. A common vehicle into my psyche is music. This led me to start painting singer-songwriters whose music has impacted me. Look into their eyes. For a moment time stops. Music and memories take over.
