My submission to the art exhibit, "Still Rockin", now showing at Leslie Jones Restaurant, Toronto until November 15. The theme is about rock musicians from back in the day who are still going strong. I am inspired by the focus and tenacity of Geddy Lee and his band, "Rush", who remained true to their vision in spite of difficulties and obstacles. My journey with portraiture in oils continues. During the making of this one I wanted to cry and give up, but I pushed through and this is the result, for what it's worth.
I am an illustrator with many years of experience in publishing, editorial, advertising and corporate. My illustration technique is linocut, printed and scanned with color applied in Photoshop. I love mixing old school and digital technologies and now am learning to paint in oils and with a wacom tablet. I'll post my learning curve here. Variety, the spice of life!
