John Malkovich, Actor

Hi. This is an oil on hardboard of actor John Malkovich. It is not finished- is still being worked on sporadically. It is 24" x 30".

Thanks a lot, Carl. Some of the boldness may be John himself : ) This painting is yet to be done, of course, and it's 30 inches high, so is taking time. Plus I am allowing myself to work on numerous other unfinished pictures, but John is my most recent 'start'.

Thank you, Jenn. Was working on John earlier today. It is slow but kind of happy exploit : ) The way I am working is slow and might appear tedious to any onlooker, but I figure if I am adding something that helps, and do it enough, I will have a nice big image of a very brilliant and original 'thespian'. I also have a drawing of Pablo on my wall, and I invite his help as work and an array of unfinished paintings. I am less alone as a result : )
