Another masterpiece by Rodriguez, so powerful in that it could be interpreted different ways.

Thank you, gnt, I so agree with oddio, I'd love to have a copy of this painting along with a dozen or so more of Rodriguez in our home. :))

It could be sadness, or consternation.

He could be reading news of some young one, someone who just doesn't listen, and wondering when that one will grow up and not act like a dang fool. That is what I read into the expression.

AAWW! He looks so very sad, the poor old frontiersman, I just hate to see a man sad like that! What's worse is when they cry, it just breaks my heart to see any man cry! Nice one gnt, I really love Alfredo Rodriguez's work!

What a fantastic painting! So many emotions evident on his furrowed brow. The detail is amazing, as usual in a painting by Alfredo Rodriguez.

definately draws you into his sadness. Not a lot of artists can do that. Thanks so much Gene:-))

Nothing to forgive, my friend. I think we all felt as you did. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.

thank U all.....I must confess about this painting.....it is by A. R. but the title on top came from my heart as I looked into the face of that old man I saw sadness and felt that way so I wrote on top what I was feeling from the painting....this painting only had a number no title....hope U understand and forgive me for that...but like Robbiel says it draws out emotions...
