Out of this Mouth ...

It's the mouth that fascinates me ...

And the stuff that's come out of this mouth -- well, it defies belief.

The best portraits, to my mind, start with a fascination by the artist with a particular feature.  I can see this painting starting at the mouth and just blossoming outwards.  Perhaps losing intensity the farther from the mouth it goes, although that may be a bad idea.

Best case scenario -- they put me on that list the NRA has of "enemies."  It would be an honor, and I say this as a member of an organization full of decent people controlled by zealots.

That being the NRA.

I was told, when I joined, that it stood for Not Really Angry.

Apparently, this was a lie.
