"Nicholas" oil on wood.  The subject matter of Realism.  My portrayal of realism.  It was created to show the reality of emotion in his life at the moment.  The eyes reflect both distress and also confidence.  The measles-like pattern shows the severity of the situation, but that this too shall pass.  Additionally, by choosing not to gesso the canvas prior to painting, these emotions and the painting will fade over time.
