Soaking Up Some Autumn Sun
The reference photo for this painting was shot in St. Paul de Vence. This was an artist who was taking a break from his studio to soak up a few rays. He invited us back to see his art and explained that he never paints shadows because he rejects any kind of sadness. It's fitting that in this painting the shadows don't touch him, and he barely casts a shadow of his own.
