Chapeau, Oil, 12x16"

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.

As a follow up to Fallen Firefighter, my January 5th blog, here is a photo from the Pensacola News Journal (click to read the full story):
