"Mr. NoBody"

9 x 12"
oil on masonite

When I visited the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco, there were a dozen or so students sketching various paintings and sculptures - including this marble bust 'Maffeo Barbarini, Prince of Palestrina' by Lorenzo Ottoni.  It made me want to join them - couldn't wait to get home and paint the Prince.  To the right is a portion of 'Samson and the Honeycomb', by Giovanni Francesco Barbier.
