I saw this guy in Amsterdam painted by Frans Hals. They used to call him THE Laughing Cavalier, No wonder he's laughing, he's found the secrete, and he knows Adriana.

Seriously it is another masterful painting. Congratulations.

Wow!!  I was looking at these portraits in your bio picture, I was hoping you would post them!!!   I love the way you loose the hat and his  right side in the shadows (lost edges) ..excellent ....I am sure Richard Schmidt and David Leffel  would give a nod to this one.
