This piece was made by permission from the work of great Seattle photographer John Gallagher: by gallagher.com. It's of Guitar Gabriel, a North Carolina blues musician. For more about him, his music, and the excellent work of the Music Maker Relief Foundation, please visit: musicmaker.org.
I was very drawn to Guitar Gabriel's amazing, soulful, expressive face. (By the way, the white area is not his hair; it's a hat he was fond of wearing.)
The materials are oils, cold wax, and altered papers, on a support of artboard.
