Diane Mannion, JOHN, 8x10"oil
      John posed for us at the Venice Art Center today for about two hours.  He had to leave right before the last twenty minute sitting, so this is unfinished and I'll consider it a sketch.  I always hope to smooth things out and bring the whole portrait together at the end by adding highlights and dark accents, and  those all important final dramatic brushstrokes with thick paint.  But I'll leave it as it is and call it "practice."
