As I took a month off from blogging, not from painting, I have a backlog of paintings to share. The above portrait was done in two-week periods during Danni Dawson's portrait painting class.
The handsome model posed as a baseball player at rest, without a shirt. Cropped as a head-and-shoulders portrait, it didn't quite make sense. So I made him up as the St. Louis Cardinals player! Somehow, I dropped the letter "t" in the cap; my apologies to the Cardinals fans. Don't you like the model's sly, side-long glance?
