Finally getting around to posting that second "Oldie but Goodie" that I mentioned last week. This one is titled "Homesteader", and like the "Golden Eagle" image that I posted last week, is one of my early Graphite, or Pencil portraits. As with "Golden Eagle", I recently had cause to remove the original from its' frame, and took the opportunity to scan it into the computer. Again, I used PhotoShop to clean up the background noise, and am very happy with the results. The original photograph was taken by a friend of mine, Jon Carissimi, and while the subject was a farmer in Florida, I thought that he fit in perfectly with my Western portraits, and so he found a home in my Faces West Gallery. The link in the title will take you to my FineArtAmerica Gallery, where you'll find "Homesteader" along with all of the images I've posted there so far.
