Today... or rather yesterday, as it's gone midnight here in my neck of the woods... it was exactly 27 years ago that he passed away. And oh how I wish, I really wish that he hadn't.
Face number 18 - Michael Carmine, 06/03/1959 - 14/10/1989. <3
Note to self... Do NOT look into his big brown eyes... it'll only end in tears.
Face number 17 done... the beautiful Michael Carmine.
Yes, I've been staring into his big brown eeeyyyys! And for the record why would you want to wish for the object of your desire to perspire to the point of complete dehydration? I love the song though :-)
Occasionally you discover something that just breaks your heart a little bit. Earlier this week I found out that this delightful fella had not only passed away, but passed away back in 1989 at the age of 30 from AIDS related heart failure.
Having a heart condition myself it always knocks me sideways a bit when I hear of people dying young due to heart problems. It's like losing a brother in arms in a way. Well, Mr. Carmine, I've certainly found a place for you in my leaky heart. :-)
Autumn is here! Aw yiiissss! Grab your coats and hats.... Precious has ;-) A wrapped up Mr Stones for face number 13. Somewhat out of season I had Nina Simone's version of Here Comes the Sun on repeat while I was painting this. Sorry inktober... I've got more faces to do ;-)
In a state of exhaustion I have fallen asleep in front of the monitor at night doing battle with big blue eyes, poofy lips and protruding collar bones. How dare you Mr. Weller! How very dare you!
The 29 faces is officially over with the end of September... this is face number 12 - another one of Precious the pilot. But I may just keep going.
