This gentlemen was sitting among a crowd at the Door County Plein Air Festival in Wisconsin. He was in one of several photos I took at the event and I was drawn to paint him. I love the thoughtful look on his face. I wish I would have introduced myself and gotten his name. If anyone who was at the event knows this man, feel free to put us in contact.
This painting was a fun piece I did to express my feelings about the winter blahs, after reading in Richard Schmid book. He states, paint what really inspires you….facial expressions happen on this day. I call this painting “Winter Blahs”.
