The Remarkably Unremarkable Man.

This is a face jug in progress. This was a difficult piece for me. It is a simple, serene, unremarkable man. There is no social commentary, no demons whispering in his ear, no thoughts or nightmares bursting out of his head. There are no horns, warts, sharp teeth, warty tongues or crazy eyes. There is just this ordinary man with an enigmatic smile and a calm demeanor.

The neighbors described him as quiet man. He was soft spoken and he kept to himself. They saw him as far from threatening. They described him as a easygoing, often carrying  groceries for people. He had an – almost serene – disposition about him. Neighbors are still in shock after.........
