Chapeau

Chapeau, Oil, 12x16" Starting bid $125

It feels good to work from a live model again. Yesterday, I joined the Portrait Artists of Arizona. I drove two hours to get there, but it was well worth it. We had a very lovely model and she was quite pleased with the likeness. I experimented with painting loosely and getting a heavier application of paint.
