What you can't figure out what it is. Maybe this will help.
How about now? Is it getting any clearer? Let's step back some more.
Still can't figure it out? Maybe we are too close.
If your computer allows it perhaps you would like to see this little movie. It was my first youtube upload so I hope it works.
Are you any closer?
Hopefully you can tell that it is a man. But do you know who?
My husband thought it was Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad. I told him he was close, but no cigar. But it wasn't a "Bad" guess. Here is Bryan Cranston.
OK Here is the complete picture. Do you know who it is?
I am sure that many of you have guessed that it is the artist Chuck Close. I think he is a wonderful artist and obviously has influenced my art. My brother had the wonderful opportunity to work with Chuck Close when he was an art student. I even got to meet him on one occasion. He was doing his large photo realistic paintings at the time. His illness has forced him to change his style but he is still leaving a impact on us all. My brother who is a digital artist now created a 3d model of Chuck. The image of this model was published on the cover of "the Village Voice" magazine in New York City. I created my polymer clay mosaic using this photo. Here is my brother, Glenn Dean's, photo from the magazine.
Yes, you can say talent runs in our family. If Chuck ever sees either of these images I hope he will be pleased. We thank him for what he has given us.
