Down on his luck - 8 x 10 oil on canvas board


$59.00 + $10.00 S & H to USA (priority mail)

Paypal preferred. No paypal account necessary, all major credit cards accepted. Other currencies accepted.

I was on my way to the coffee shop at about 6:30 this morning when I saw this guy standing in front of McDonalds with a sign that said "Will work for food". Now, not many guys are out at 6:30 AM on Sunday looking for work unless they are really needy. Well I didn't have any work that needed doing, that's my opinion and not my wife's, but the guy looked like he could use a hand. I bought him a breakfast sandwich and coffee and then drove on to the coffee shop all the time thinking that you could see the desperation in his face. Later I came home and painted this quick study in his likeness.

Great work Russ. And a good story behind it. More people should help as you did.
