I really had fun painting this one; the folds in the shirt and the jeans were my favorite part. This man was working next to my booth at the farmer's market; I set up there last year a few times to sell some prints and t-shirts, and I met a lot of fun, interesting people. A couple of them still stand out in my mind- Paul Beverly and Sandy Dyche had a booth called "P. S. It's Leather." (The P.S. comes from the first letters in each of their names). Everything they sold was leather- they made leather "paintings," jewelry, and even some 3-D leather art (among other things.) Here is a link to some of their work. Be sure to check out "With the Indians;" it's a 3-D set all made out of leather!

To those of you that check my site regularly- I'm sorry it has taken so long to post a new painting. Jeff and I are currently in the process of moving from Richmond to Elon. If you haven't heard, Jeff was recently hired as an "events coordinator" at Elon University, and we're both very excited about moving back to NC!
This latest painting was a lot of fun for me to paint, although the plaid pattern did challenge my patience a little. I was drawn to painting this photograph because of the implied movement; I like being able to picture the movement of the shaking of the blanket as it would have continued after the picture was taken.
