Saint No.39 by Doc-Hammer Saint No.39 by Doc-Hammer
Oil on Canvas. 11"x14"

Done as a "study" for Saint N0.40. It is a completed work and should not be judged as a "first attempt"... Think of it as a an "also-attempt" (oh yeah... nice and awkward).

More than Saint No.40, this painting is a dead-on likeness of the sitter. I found her (Danielle) with my bogus MySpace profile. And if you never saw my "Anne" profile, trust me here, it's about as inviting as a room full of scorpions that shoot fire. Danielle, being super cool, not only got the joke, but enjoyed the joke. Sadly, she has dropped from MySpace just recently, and I never got to tell her that I have completed her portrait. So if everybody who is not Danielle could turn their head for a moment, I would like to give a private message to my sitter: "Danielle, I finished your portrait."... Okay everybody can turn back around now.

you are clearly a man on many talents...i will put my seething jealousy aside for a moment to say beautiful work. your paintings have a spark of life and emotion to them that many artists strive for, but few manage to achieve. her eyes are particularly captivating. lovely!

Of all the paintings in your gallery I love this one the most.There's something about it that's striking. Her expression looks so heartbroken, like she's on the verge of tears.When I first saw it I spent a good ten minuets staring at it.

This is absolutely unbelievable. Oil pastel artists on deviantart are rarely tackling realism. I think this is a perfect ideal of something that is becoming slowly lost in art as people feel that it is too little to reproduce just what's happening in a moment.

Might be too personal a painting, or weird because you cannot find the subject any more, but I would love to have this as a print.

You have a serious talent. I've added this to three of my "Collections" of DeviantArt, so I can keep an eye on it. This is absolutely beautiful. Please keep drawing, you're making our lives more bearable.
