Wood Flute, 12x12", oil on linen panel, 2016. I am always searching for interesting models. I found Flash, working a booth, at the 28th Annual Native American Championship Pow Wow in Houston, Texas. Flash describes himself as 1/2 Cherokee, 1/2 Cajun (though he uses a less PC term). His personality is as vibrant as his regalia which made for an exceptionally fun modeling session. Flash was pleased to add "male model" to his eclectic list of life accomplishments. Check out a video of Flash playing his flute here.
