I painted this in 2005. Kathy hated it then and she hates it now. I, conversely, am inordinately pleased with how it turned out and wouldn’t mind if I could paint more pieces in the same manner.

Beautiful work Jeff! Did you yourself pose as John the Baptist… assuming that’s John the Baptist in the painting?
Thanks for the compliment, Jason. After looking at your Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. piece, I have to say “beautiful work!” right back at you. It’s great!
I’m pretty sure I did use myself as a model for the Baptist’s face, although I obviously prettified the features. Luckily, that third eye in the middle of my forehead allows me to draw myself with the other orbs closed. Kathy is one lucky woman!
You know what’s odd, besides your taste in ties? Kathy thinks I secretly use her as a model whenever I draw an evil woman, like a fury. Yet she never thought I used her for this piece, which, by the way, I didn’t. I remember part of the face was inspired by the way the sunlight hit a wall one day. See? Staring at a blank wall for hours IS hard work, despite what parents and spouses may say!
