Mr. Whitman

I'm in a group show during May 2007 at the First Unitiarian Universalist Church of San Diego. This is a piece for that show I just completed last night (uh, at 1 a.m. this morning!).
I used a rather famous photo of Walt Whitman for the model. The quest was to paint the poet as if he were here. Rather than looking like him I think I got the elements of his sexuality, this pacifism and his social activism.
And I don't know that his eyes were green. They are a pale color in the black and white photo of him. I am just partial to green eyes.

This is for the May group show at the First UU Church of San Diego. I've wanted to photo some work in progress for a while now.

Somethings Never Change

This is the barbershop in McKinney, Texas where I had my hair cut this Saturday. And where I had it cut when I was six years old. The pictures of Ron and Nancy Reagan were additions I had not seen.
