Your palette seems to be a modified version of Rembrandt's. The depth of color even in the darkest of shadows, is evocative of that style. Very classic and classy.

I really enjoy painting the shadows within shadows and the highlights within highlights. I'm shooting for a theatrical feel, as if my models are on stage.

...something like a resurrection when contrasted with the subject a few days ago. Your work speaks well at many levels.

I guess "The Blind Robot Juggler Waves Bye-Bye" indicates a much lower-brow approach to the work; perhaps I merely enjoy the art on a different level. Or it speaks to me in a different language--for example Sunday's Get Fuzzy.

Trailing on Kevin M's thoughts:
Seems to be a metaphor for our times; blind (no eyes) and arms outstretched, head tilted towards the warmth of the light, yet still in darkness looking for a way out.
Or have I had one too many Bushmill's today? :o)

The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw this one was "Maestro."
