And just one last thing before I go?

Here's a cropped detail ...

What's fun about this whole painting-on-bits-of-newspaper business is that the stuff on the newspaper, for good or for bad, ends up informing the image.  That is to say, the "eye" on the right side of the image isn't painted -- it's that partly-obscured woman's shoulder.  And the left side of the mouth, the gray part that's defining the upper lip to a bit?  That's also just something that's coming through.


And this, friends, is why you people spend so much money on your Year of Magical Painting subscriptions.  For insights like this.

Happy Holidays.
