Ernest Hemingway thought that Mark Twain was America's greatest writer. Hemingway defined courage as "Grace under pressure", which I find to be similar to Twain's concept.

Definitely agree here. Seeing as the pressure of deciding whether to show courage or not results in a small delay until the final choice falls they both had a really close idea of what courage is.

Wonderful and quite different portrait of him.
It seems unreal like a memory.
I like and enjoy your style.

Very interesting, somehow it reminds me of Andy Warhol (except his funky colurs and printing instead of brushes).

...and of course I meant the reminiscence to his style of portraits, not that your subject looks like him :)
