'Don't bother'

oil on 9"x12" panel from my new series 'Post Noir'
The new series is about paint and emotion. I grew up in Chicago and the faces I saw all around me were sometimes so hard that it made me feel an intensity that was dark and deep, being so young I had no idea what happened to those faces but I knew it was over my head and as I paint these familiar noir scenes I bring my earliest memories and the raw emotion to the paint.
