Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I might get some argument if I said he was indisputably the best American poet of the 19th Century. His stylistic innovations echo more than a hundred years later and Whitman is the poet that each generation "discovers." I am happy with the painting because I was able to handle shades of grey in the man's hair,beard and even chest hair. If you have a poetry lover on the gift list, this is an item to consider.

Materials used:
