Ghost, oil on hardboard 6x6" $99

Every painter has days when things don't quite materialize the way expected. Those are "wipe off" days.  That's how this painting began.  When it was originally complete it was nothing like I anticipated.  Grab a rag and wipe it off! Well, I did that. Then something took hold. I began to work back into the areas most interesting.  The eyes an mouth are pretty much all that got readdressed. I think the end result has a haunting beauty.
