"Stock Plunge"

6"x6", oil on gesso board -NFS

This is the image of a trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on the day of the stock market falling from LA Times on Aug 5.
I thought the diagonals with the expression of the shock in the image works together perfect. It is not my own shot but  I wanted to regenerated into a  painting for the sake of fun and learning.
I painted the  whole surface with red to begin with and kept red showing through to exaggerate the panic.

Terrific painting! The abstract background is wonderful juxtaposed against the face. I like the touches of red!

You must have permission from Justin Lane the photographer to be able to have this for sale on DPW? I was shocked when I saw it and recognized it from my newspaper.
