Good morning peeps.
it's portrait time again...
a few layers of green, brown, beige, white and black
I love Morgan Freeman as an actor.
I also think he's a pretty cool person -
at least what i've seen of him.
The media gets caught up on things like
the 72 year old wanting to marry his 26 year old step grand-daughter
but i couldn't give a rat's ass who he marries.
As long as she's of legal age -
and she is, so more power to you, Morgan!
I know many 72 year olds
who would be more than happy
to marry a 26 year old.
If only they were given the chance.
But they don't have Morgan's money,
or sex appeal,
so it doesn't work the same way.
One of my favorite movies is THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.
It was based on a Stephen King novel
although you'd never tell when you watch the movie.
(Most of Stephen King's books are thrillers)
It's set in the 1940's - the story of 2 men in prison
who form a friendship over years of incarceration
and eventually find redemption.
Morgan plays a character called Red.
I loved him - so believable.
These portraits are fun for me
because the format is relatively small
( 8.5 x 11, a normal sheet of paper )
and I do them pretty loosely so they don't take very long.
Once in a while,
we all feel the need to return to something familiar.
Portraits are kinda becoming my "something comfortable".
Enjoy the day folks.
