"Wild Billy Kirk"

A long time teacher and friend died recently. He was a special person who made a big impact on me and my painting. He died soon after he had a painting accepted in the Oil Painters of America national exhibit this year. He was so excited and I was proud of him. He loved western painting and went to reenactment events for resource material. This pastel painting is of him in his cowboy garb.

I love pastels on velour mat board ! I get a lot more details in my paintings esp. when I do portraits.
