I Painted This Artsy Man at Quack’s

He looked like some sort of musician to me

He looked like some sort of musician to me

I painted him on a Saturday at Quack’s.   He popped in and sat down two tables away from me,  providing the perfect distance and profile pose to paint him.  It was a very quick oil sketch, but I think that I captured him and his impish personality.  He came over to see what I was up to, and talked to me briefly.  It was very loud in the bakery at that moment, and I didn’t understand him.  Could this possibly be the same person that commented on my blog a few days ago, awaiting a portrait of himself?  If so, here you are.  If this is you, Jon, please leave a comment.  That would be fun.

      Hi, Stephen.

      Yes, my Persian friend should be working on his thesis to complete his studio art degree instead of sending me these beautiful font glyphs. If he were here in Austin, we would be painting at coffee houses together, I am sure of it.

    Lavanna, it’s Jon. You did indeed capture an aspect of my personality that I find stunning. I don’t say this because I was lucky enough to be painted by you one day, but because of what I’ve seen of your work. You have amazing talent! I hope you accomplish all that you set out to do.

      Hi, Jon.

      That is really nice of you. Thanks for the comments. I am working a little too hard right now, so the feedback is appreciated double-fold.
