Homeless 2  8x12  Oils on canvas panel

How close are any of us from being homeless? Without family support I've heard that most Americans are one or two paychecks from being homeless. Scary stuff.

This fellow is resigned to the fact that he will most likely sleep in an alley. If he's lucky he'll find a large cardboard box for cover from the elements. If he's really lucky the gospel mission will have an empty bed and a hot meal tonight. He isn't going to worry about tomorrow until tomorrow.

My wife & I don't have to worry about much any more. We're on a "fixed income" now that we're retired but live a VERY good life with our two dogs, our hobbies, good health and each other.  How and why does this fellow not have what we have?


  1. At last I have time and feel for proper commenting, as I was busy making money, so could only look through my blogroll and quickly run back to job.
    You have number of so interesting works here.
    I think this guy is giving wisdom and frightening at the same time, and the watcher feels the need to stop and look into these blue eyes.
    I posted today the link to great drawing/painting manuals, please look at them.

  2. Hi Irina, this fellow is weary. Weary of traveling, weary of finding a place to sleep a place to eat . . . Probably tired of life. I wanted "powerful" eyes and I have added the white glint in the eyes. Those little white dotss make a difference!
