i am a person too by rainbow-falls i am a person too by rainbow-falls
i was asked to paint his for Worcester cathedral, a commission depicting homeless issues. So i thought as many homeless people say to me where i makes them feel human again that I would use the above title, Gosh this was hard to do  completely out my comfort zone, as 1 i am not a straight line painter and 2 this is the 3rd person i have painted and the other 2 were a disaster. so this took a lot of working out, Well I hope it does what I want it to do and make people think

Oh this 1s 16 by 20 inch acrylic on canvas. mixed media as i added a piece of cardboard for the cardboard 

learnt alot with clothes too not really done those before. most proud of the sleeping bag and the top of the shoulder only the line aacross though. sort of wimped out on the face most of it was covered. but hey this piece is really all about the piece of cardboard

here is the blog i did with the piece if you are interested www.maggsdaycentre.co.uk/2016/…

Wonderful message! Good composition, I like how you shaded/highlighted the polkadotted fabric, and adding the actual cardboard is awesome :D I hear you about the straight lines, I hate them: walls, floors, windows, doors.... but sometimes ya just gotta do what ya gotta do ;)

thank you for you kind words. the piece was about the cardboard. everything else is just background. i did try painting it first, but it didnt look right so i opted to go for the real thing and so glad i did. Plus this got displayed in Worcester cathedral for 2 weeks  which was quite an honour
