Hey Tim

It's half of the full painting. I intend on hanging this beside it. It's my first attempt at understanding how linen is stretched over ribbing

Thanks for Sharing.

Hello Rex,

I think that it looks pretty damn good!
I have most always leaned toward photo-realism, but I appreciate a good variety. I like the way that you have captured McCudden.
Looks great, keepem' coming.

Best Wishes, Jay

P.S. I prefer to paint non-living people, they don't complain!

Thanks Jay
Glad you like it... I work in the museum world as a preparator and we always joke with the curators,
"Work with dead artists....Its less headaches!"

Rex,

I hope you see the difference with your art and that "other" guys stuff. I wasn't slamming artist like yourself. I still think it's cool. =)

How'd the linen piece turn out?
