Abstract JFK Portrait Details

Loose, colorful and abstract style JFK portrait. The painting is created with acrylics, inks and crayon on archival paper and measures 30" x 22". If you appreciate expressive portraits of former Presidents than you will probably love this one. It captures a keen likeness of JFK but allows the mind to roam and explore with all it's abstract qualities.

Artist Notes

Been slinging a lot of paint this week (finally) after taking some time off for the birth of our son, some commission obligations and filming the 'painting in layers' workshop. Feels like I hadn't painted in months although it was only about 4-5 weeks. Anyhow, it's good to be back and think the break did some good. I really like the flow of this portrait and has a cohesive feel to it. Not easy painting portraits with a style as loose as mine but I'm determined to get better at it.

Hope you enjoyed the new piece.
