10 x 10 Portrait in Oil by Mary Hughes

"English Street Performer"

10" x 10" Oil on Canvas

A former classmate of mine came back to the states after an extended stay in the U.K. with wonderful photos of people on the streets of England. This man in particular captured my attention. After toying with the idea of painting people for years this man's face settled the inner debate. I just had to paint him. 

This painting is available for purchase. Contact me for details.

What a pleasant surprise! Wow, one of my photographs has been transformed into a work of art!

Knowing this man, it is almost spooky how you have captured his sweet demeanor.

Well done, Mary. Well done.
