I finally got back to my studio today to work on this portrait of Fred that I’d started last week. It may still need a few finishing touches, but I think it’s mostly finished.
I happened to be at the Boulder library the other day, paging thru a book of American art, when I noticed a portrait of Thomas Jefferson by Gilber Stuart. I never had paid attention to his work before, and his Jefferson portrait rocked me. I loved the color scheme, and thought it could inform the portraint of Fred.
