20 x 16", oil on linen, 2014. Available from the Artist $2600
I did this painting during a workshop I took with artist Rob Liberace. I was the model coordinator for the workshop so, naturally, I lined up a grouping of my favorite models. This image is yet another painting with Dave Malin as model. Here Dave poses as the self-possessed lawman of the old west.
In the past I have painted Dave as a cowboy, patriot, farmer, train engineer, Roman Senator and Renaissance man. Dave, an artist himself, attends the Monday morning group of artists that meet to paint from life at the Robinson Road Community Center in Oak Ridge, Texas.
