Here's the Bruce Springsteen painting in 5 stages- painted in Acrylic. I was trying to use the red, white and blue motif in the color-scheme to show that he is America- not something separate on a flag, or purely political or nationalistic. When there is something wrong with this country, it should be criticized as he has done in the past.
Anyway, I thought I was making him too red in the face which could imply other meanings, so I toned it down a bit with more of an orange-red and some purples in the shadows as well...
This is at "Rumours"- 55th & 8th Ave. in Manhattan.
