Einstein, Albert

6"x4" oil on masonite panel This is developing into a bad habit. Whenever a picture of Mr. Einstein and I cross paths, I paint a painting of him. Oh well, I do have worse (much worse) habits, so I guess I can live with this one. Painting from black and white photographs is a great exercise. It brings on my full palette and, as long as I hold my values true, it usually holds together. If it doesn't, I will have ticked off a bunch of dead guys' ghosts.
