Chuck Close Must Be Freaking Out Even More

Sometimes it's good to look back at some of the good stuff.

This, I always thought, was some of that.

The first post of this blog, some 159 ago, entitled "Chuck Close Must Be Freaking Out" was this:
If I'm to become the pre-eminent portraitist of my time, I'll have to somehow get past Chuck Close to do so.

Because it's a friendly competition, I painted this picture of Chuck. I call it "Close, But Not Quite", which does make me laugh.

Although I used a grid technique for all my painting, I left it more conspicuous in this painting than I usually do, as a bit of homage.

I think it's going nicely. I bet he is.

I'd be. Were it me.
