Witness Protection

This was a fun painting.  Tom and I moved from the city to a farm 8 years ago and most of our friends from the city think we are in a witness protection program.  Tom does look a bit different than he did 8 years ago.  I plan to do a series of these this month.  This was painted "alla prima" which in Italian means "at first attempt".  It's the technique I most enjoy when painting figurative work.  The painting is completed at the first sitting and paint is applied wet on wet.
