Ooooooooo Lord!! LOLOL!! ;D I remember this pic!! LOL! Evita had me crackin up by the way she describe this pic. She said it looked like David had a sneer on his face, lookin all haggard out as if he'd been runnin the streets all day! LOL!! ;D The pic is very dark & moody as if this pic is depicting the darker side of David. It is very spooky as well as disturbing! But I guess that's how the artist saw David at that point in time. Ironically, the painting comes from the So Soon We Change LP. If you look at David's pic, he does look kinda depressed.
"He makes his mark on your mind and engraves his signature on your heart. David is deep."- Marvin Gaye
I always thought the artist was trying to capture David's inner turmoil. But that's kinda deep for the intended purpose of the picture. I have never liked it. What's up with the reds and blues. He did however capture the saddness in David's eyes.
Yeah, so what man wouldn't beg if he could do it with David Ruffin's raspy tenor? And what woman's heart wouldn't melt? "
