This was my final painting for Nancy Franke's workshop. It is painted on a 16 x 20 x 2" canvas. One thing she mentioned several times was to look for triangles, X's and Z's in bodies and in compostion. More interesting. This little guy has lots of those going on and I think that was the main reason I was drawn to this photograph.
I am personally drawn to Nancy's work because of her color palette, her loose brush work, and subject matter. She has more energy and light than almost anyone I know and that shines through in her work. I am so happy to have had this opportunity to learn from her again. She's the bomb.
Below is a picture of Nancy (yellow scarf) and her wannabes. I am the giant on the front left. Nancy could fit in my back pocket. Sold
