Homeless Man No.2

Homeless Man No. 2 – Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas Panel – Painted 9/14/2008 – Homeless Man No. 2

I took a little creative license here and put together two different homeless subjects, both recently photographed on the streets of Sacramento, CA. One was a black man sitting on a bench catching some warm sun and the other was an older balding white man; both men appeared with carts stuffed full of their belongings and looked extremely tired.

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
