I couldn't resist painting this
fellow who had such a great
expression.

"Darryl"

Our good friend Darryl
occasionally plays for us
and I hoped in this sketch to
capture the intensity with
which he plays.

"I Love Cats"

I was impressed with the
size of the cat. He obviously
rules in that household.

the contest.

The guitarist is Darryl Denning playing:
Prelude #3 by Heitor Villa-Lobos, a selection from
Darryl's CD: Classical Guitar Artistry.
"Andy"

He was a wonderful model, the pose  repeated
over several hours. I don't know his real name.
Somehow "Andy" seemed right.

He played and sang for us all morning as he
posed in Elizabethan garb. An entertaining
morning.

"A Hand of Bugs"

A student challenged me to paint the
plaster hand and bugs. Actually, I used
my hand for more realism.
