I Painted this German Professor at Quack’s

He was grading papers at Quack's

He was grading papers at Quack's

I painted him at Quack’s.  I really don’t know if he is a German Professor, but he looked like one, and he was going over papers at Quack’s.  He sneezed, and a girl student sitting at a table facing him said, “Gesundheit!”  He looked up with a big, kindly smile.  So, who knows?  He might be a professor at the University German department.   If he finds out about my blog somehow,  I ask his forgiveness for exaggerating his nose.  As you know, I usually don’t go back in and fix things when I get home to the studio.

Who out there knows if this man is a professor?

    There’s a French (movie) actor who this fellow reminds me of.

      Hi, Owen!

      Hah! I think that you are thing of Gerard Depardieu – I’m in trouble now – his nose was half the size of that! He was quite a handsome man, with big features.

      Hi, M.I

      I always paint on a 9×12 canvas. If I do a head shot (vignette), I am seated about 8 or 9 feet away. If my back is to the wall, (and it usually is), no one can see what I am painting :). Sometimes, people want to talk to me when I’m painting.
