Gerry Creates the Winds

I really didn't intend to deify Gerry as I seem to have ended up doing in this portrait. Suffice to say he visually fits the archetype of the wise old man as described by Carl Jung, so the wispy brush stokes seem to place him directly in the realm of cloud-sitters.

Gerry, Oil, 20 x 16 inches

Click here for an earlier portrait of Gerry, it's nice to see improvement over time.


  1. awesome portrait man. your oils have a freshness and simplicity that I love and try to get too. way more practice I guess hehe.

    keep up and well,

  2. nice one mate- like the way you handled his hair especially :)

  3. the hair and brushstrokes are great
