Boomerang, Abstract Painting

Beginning with graphite and grey gesso as an underpainting this expressive portrait emerges in an explosion of color. When this piece was done, as usual, I kept it on the easel or a few days. When ever I caught myself gazing at it, I seemed to be drawn into it, then thrust out only to find the process repeating itself, like a boomerang! There is a coat of archival varnish applied to enhance the texture and color. Painting is on gallery wrap canvas with sides painted; arrives ready to hang.”

If you can recognize the subject, then I am making some progress
