I woke up, looked in the mirror and reached for the asprin and tried to remember the night before? You gave me a scare there! Thankfully it's not real but a truly awe inspiring brilliant portrait. Rick.

Suzie, this is amazing, the textures you have created in the skin & the hair are brilliant.....His eyes are very piercing,but very soul-filled, pained,even spiritual! I have the feeling he defies us into action, knowing and seeing the faults of the world, by his wisdom of age......he is a compelling characer...
