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.
