...powerful expression.:iconsabyworld:
Sadness, pain, suffering, injustice."Empty -look" in the eyes, though full filled with"plenty" of all the emotions I cited...:iconbowingplz::iconblacksparklesplz:
Evoked to remind me of this song :

youtu.be/lus-hodhGMw   "tous les blues sont ecrits pour toi"

"I woke up this morning baby, 
The blues was pouring out of me" 
A hundred times I said those words 
Those words others wrote 
With all my voice, with all my soul 
"With all the soul that I can" 
But that morning, I understood.
La peine aux longs champs de coton
J'imaginais de mon cocon
Les coups, le sang, les temps boueux
J'avais mal en fermant les yeux

The hard work in the cotton fields 
I was imagining in my cocoon 
The hits, the blood, the mud weather 
I was hurt while closing my eyes
"His baby's far away"
J'ai des pardons, j'ai des prieres
Mais l'blues c'est pas des phrases en l'air

"I woke up this morning baby" 
But this morning you're really cold 
You understand deep in your chest 
All the blues are written for you
"Oh, oh I feel, the blues in me
Nobody knows how I really feel
Nobody knows, nobody cares"
Les mots te brulent un par un comme s'ils
Comme s'ils t'appartiennent enfin
Ces blues etaient les tiens

Words are burning you one by one like if 
Like if they are finally yours 
Those blues were yours

With all my voice, all my soul, "with all the soul that I can" 
The blues I was never taught 
"I woke up this morning, the blues was pouring out of me 
Nobody knows, nobody sees"...

...:iconbowplz::iconblueheartsplz: Thanks for sharing such great  Art with us,dear Dirk...

... Ayano Tateyama (Bows) [V12] by Jerikuto ...my privilege, dear Dirk.
I have absolutely nothing against "Nudes"(when there is respect and no vulgarity)...:iconnono-plz:..You might have noticed, I draw nudes, too...(though I am a woman) in respect to the woman, herself, with her different emotions, aspects or roles, never as "an object"...

of course I noticed ;-), and you really paint beautiful ladies :eyepopping:
yes, there is a clear order between 'artful' and 'vulgarity'; I hope I always stay at the right side Meow :3

I see a bit of uncertainty in the expression, rather than all out regret or "hindsight is 20/20" cliches. His features are lean but still muscular. Maybe he his fairly successful? In spite of living decently so far why has so much has been wasted?
