Jim Lehr re-do or is it redux?
The PBS newscaster Jim Lehr that I painted a portrait of and posted a few posts ago, I really like. Honest to goodness I do. I mean it. Swear on a stack of telephone books (are there still telephone books around?)... however...I thought I'd take a crack at another portrait of him with a different composition, but more importantly, with warmer, more saturated color and with the paint brushed on thicker and more layered. Ipso facto and la de dah, herewith is the result!
