I enjoy making friends wherever I am. At a roadside tourist shop in the desert I met this interesting Native American who agreed to pose for this brief portrait study during a lull in business.
I wanted to paint in direct sunlight, and set up my easel on the edge of the parking area. As I painted this, it caused a number of passing motorists to pull off the road and stop to watch. Soon I had lost my model who had to attend to the customers, but I was able to complete this much of the portrait before that.
I rarely show portraits on my blog, and I felt this would be an interesting change of pace from my plein air landscapes. Thanks for looking, and have a great day.
