Birthday surprise

A new painting done from an old concept that I could never get the colors that I wanted. I did the drawing a few months back and tried 2-3 times to paint it up but kept getting stuck with bad colors. I've decided it may have come subconsciously from the Godfather part II, doesn't it look like Hyman Roth? Remember that whole scene cutting the cake in Cuba?

Ah yes Cuba. It’s all adding up. I think the colors work really well. What ever problems you were having they seem to be over.

another "bravo!" for you, Dave, I dig when you're in this kind of drawings with such a good balance between caricature and realism, it's always a pleasure to spend a few minutes on each details of your drawings and paintings.
can't wait for the next piece!
