My source was this picture that I took several years ago at the Milwaukee Art Museum. It’s been on our
refrigerator for months . . . and it struck me recently that it was good source material for a drawing and painting.
I worked on the drawing for about a week, and also have been working on preparing the canvas board for the portrait. I’ve been layering different shades of orange acrylic paint on the board, trying to apply at least 2 coats every time I was at my studio.
