Killing time with Philip Roth at Penn Station while waiting for the train. I was eager to try that new Canson paper i bought today. I think this one will remain unfinished.

Beautiful. Doesn't look unfinished to me, I love the whitespace. :)

I like the suggestiveness of it not being finished -- such a wonderful job, France -- those eyes!!!

Especially, what I felt interesting is a mouth.
I imagined the movement of the muscle.

C'est tres fort comme c'est. Ses yeux, ses sourcils---il y a tout un monde la-bas.

the BROWS...I LOVE the BROWS!!
geesh....the brows make the drawing!
the "unfinished????" background makes his features stand out!
"Finishing" it would take away from it, so great choice to stop there!
BRAVO ma belle!

Knowing when to stop is half the battle, I think - I love this one right where it is!!

I love Canson paper. At the local Loomis art store here during the summer I purchased a couple of prepacked suare 10" by 10" canson paper. Just seeing the word 'Canson' has made me think it is about time I open them up. I like the touch of shading on the left cheek - I think it finishes your portrait. Without it he would appear sad. With it though he appears to know something unknown to me the viewer that makes him smile ever so slightly.
