Since we’re doing portraits….. (see yesterday’s post)…No wonder I was in trouble all the time at school. When I try & do people, they turn out like caricatures!
This is (supposed to be) my friend, John Farnsworth. He taught a workshop that I participated in, in France last year and as usual, when John’s teaching, we all learned SO much and had a really great time. He bought this chapeau in the Eymet village market.
One day, not long after I got out of the Army, and was living back in Flagstaff, I ran into my first grade teacher. She looked up at me, her head wobbling, and said, “Why Johnny, you were such a cute little boy. What happened?”
I looked at this painting and wondered the same.
I love it. You really nailed me. Thea and Rosa and I have all been rolling on the floor laughing all day. But I did notice that those handsome Canadian Cowboys got a different treatment. No caricatures there.
Anyway, that looks like one happy guy. And that’s me to a “t”.
looks like Number Painting
