What If

$50.00 plus shipping
What If  7 5/8x115/8  Oils on canvas/masonite panel

This fellow seems to be 'way off in a daydream or "remembering when" or wondering what if he had - - - - instead of - - - -. You can fill in the blanks. I guess that we all wonder what our lives would have been if we had done this or hadn't done that. Would we be any more or less content with ourselves?

Some of the saddest words are "I wish that I had/hadn't....".  Life is about choices and we do the best that we can at the time with what we have and what know. Most of the time!  :-)

Another one of those "el cheapo" canvas/masonite panels. Waste not.


  1. I like this face of this man in your picture. Like he's thinking of the past, what he did or didn't do.
    I like what you say Ken, that we do the best we can right there.
    Have a nice day, and thanks for nice comments in my blog.


  2. Thanks, Berit. I get ideas for paintings while looking at your blog! I really LOVE how you use color. If you notice, I try to use many bright,brilliant colors myself. :-)

  3. We say: better do and be sorry of done, than not do and be sorry of not doing.
    I like his eyes. They are so full of life and understanding. Interesting how small white dot can add life to eyes, magic.

  4. Hi Irina! Painting has MANY little things that omitted render the painting "incomplete". And usually we (I) don't know what is missing! :-) The light in the eyes makes the person alive otherwise, they're dead. Odd, isn't it?
