My background today was a deep pink. I
covered the canvas and headed out to see my
art group hoping the model tonight would
be someone I could paint on pink. The model
is a handsome young man, who was posing with
a big cowboy hat on his knee. I immediately
thought pink cowboy. His expression was
serious, and I as I painted, I imagined his
story. "Maybe he's in a bar, or working
the rodeo circuit," I thought.
Our model had his own ideas, and brought
his own music -- something I've never witnessed
before in our group. It wasn't bar music, but
it was quite unique, and I loved painting him in
what felt like an envelope of sight and sound
that he was creating.
Voila the portrait for today.
Have an enjoying-your-happy-day day.
