The Gladiator Guy
12 x 9 " oil
This was done at an open studio/ model session at MSUM a while back. The guy who ran the sessions was unable to line up a model for that week (we usually work from a nude model for 2+ hours) and so he talked his friend/roommate into posing for us. I don't know whether he was pleased or disappointed to be wearing this roman centurian outfit instead of posing nude.
I am pulling out all these random paintings because I am trying to clean up my studio and prepare for the Studio Crawl event, which is in a little more than 2 weeks. "Cento per cento" is my advertised theme, meaning 100 paintings for sale for $100 (or less). Gulp.
