This is a portrait of the great Randy. I first met Randy in 2003, my first year as an assistant to Daniel Greene during his summer workshops. Randy is absolutely the most amazing (if not the prettiest) model I have ever worked with. He can hold perfectly still the entire time and almost always gets back into the same pose without needing to be corrected. It's interesting for me because I normally talk to my models while I am painting and expect them to move a bit.
This Renaissance costume is one of my favorite outfits Randy has. The painting took eight 3-hour sittings. It is 24 x 28, Oil on Linen, 2006.
