Normally, I like the viewer to see a mini version of whatever famous or not so famous painting a museum patron is enjoying. Going through my photographs, I ran across this one. It just worked for me. The painting he was gazing at was very dark and probably wouldn't have been all that interesting, but I liked how it made the patron stand out.
The funny thing about these paintings is how many people will look at one and say it looks like someone they know.

Speaking of photographs. I love that I never have to miss an opportunity when I see something I might want to paint because I always have my backup camera...my cellphone. Of course, I have my fair share of photographs of my finger. I saw this Speed Bump comic strip and had to laugh... that's me for sure..
