Jonathan and Nate

The day was spent mixing flesh tones and laying undertones on the men. I'm loving this painting. 

I Was Visible Today

The African American Forum Committee of Bloomington Normal recognized me for my contributions to the community through my art at their annual Juneteenth Celebration. I'm humbled. Then I returned home to paint.

I see you Jonathan

Jonathan was finally selected to join the (In)Visible Men.  I wanted to have two men in one piece but my second guy was not available when I was ready to shoot. Jonathan had a deep dark espresso complexion and a long sleek posture that I've wanted to paint since I met him.

President Dietz is Installed

I can't believe I walked into a meeting this morning in the Founders Suite and walked past my own painting. President Dietz was installed this week at the foyer entrance.
