"Fear and Hunger,"

"Fear and Hunger," Oil on Cradled Wood, 16x16. Reference: My own.  A soul that I encountered who was down and out, playing his guitar on some street, looking for his fare. He caught me looking and taking his photo and the intensity of the fear and mistrust was palpable from across the street.  His stare has haunted me for years and I knew I would paint him.
