Matt, oil on linen, 16″x 20″

Here’s a painting of a fellow, Matt, who models for the school which I teach at, the Hampton Studio of Fine Art.  Other artists had set up this pose, and had been painting for a couple of days.  I jumped in for the remainder of the pose- and so, this painting is a two day sketch.  What a quirky painting- Matt looks like a Harley Davidson gang member, talks like an NPR news anchor, and tells stories like an uncle who has worn a dozen different hats.
