Another wonderful model from our Monday morning drawing group at the LGAA Shanley House. I painted this portrait later in my studio from drawings and photo I did that morning. He still dressed the way he did when he was younger. A working man, a cowboy for life.

Road to Pearl, Texas

I was with Terri, a painting buddy, and we were driving away from Pearl. With the storm behind us, it felt like we were out running it. I used a pallet knife to express the stormy sky and dark green landscape.

14"x 11"
Oil on Canvas
I have taken two one day intense workshops from James Spurlock ( http://jamesrspurlock.com/ ) on painting portraits. This is a study done in his second class. He is an excellent teacher; I learned so much. Now I want to do more portraits.
