Last Saturday the Wimberley Valley Art League held a very well-organized "Arts Fest" complete with many artists, jewelers and musicians. A number of my paintings were displayed in one of the pavilions, and I set up my easel and paints.
I used as reference a photo of someone I'd caught unawares at my daughter's SXSW party. He has such a great profile that I knew I wanted to paint him as soon as I laid eyes on him. (Danny, do you know him?)
A lady making the rounds of the Arts Fest thought he looked like Jesus. I can see that. There's an intent intelligence in his benign expression.
