Big Al

Big Al owns a really nice nursery near my folks home in FL and they do most all their garden shopping there. He starts all his own plants, and Anna liked seeing the monkey which was very near this stack of "flats" under a shed.

This was a real joy to paint and I included a close up to show some of my brushwork in detail. As you can see, I gesture a lot with the brush and with color. No details, no real information, but I always hear that people see a likeness in even my sketchiest work. I think so long as I have the gesture; capturing the way people carry themselves or hold their heads, etc. then the person rings true.
