"The Shy One"

7 x 10"
oil on panel

There are a few photos I've worked from multiple times - this is from one I took in Charleston years back.  I'm just nuts about the shadows on the wall.  I actually painted most of this weeks ago, let it dry, then played with additional gold washes over the wall, some palette knife stuff with the palm leaves and some drybrushing on the ground and on the young man.  I had no idea what would happen, only that it's good to just let it happen.

This painting will be included in a grouping titled Here Comes The Sun, opening September 14th at the 16 Patton Gallery.  Please click here for a larger view and purchase information.
