A portrait of my friend Herbert
Here is another portrait from late 2008, of my friend Herbert. Once again, it is acrylics on paper, 50 x 65 cm.
What a difference it makes to have a proper frame. (Again, I forgot to photograph the painting until it is was firmly behind glass.) But I think the frame, passepartout, in gray, and the sharp white of the cut, really makes the picture stand out, and make it look much better than it did when it left my hands. The framing was done by a professional, "Innrömmun Renate" which is found at Samtún 40, Reykjavík. Well chosen, I'd say.
