Paint Party Friday... Same Painting, Another Possibility


It's time for another Paint Party Friday!

Last week while creating my patchwork painting, the image of a man in madras shorts popped into my head...


So I grabbed my sketchbook and started drawing.

Tyler kept me company as I sketched and asked one of his favorite questions:
"What's his name?"

My response:
"What do you think his name is?" 


So, thanks to Tyler, I would like to introduce you to "Martin".

(The last in this series of paintings...   for now!)

  11. Aww, he looks like such a kind and slightly confused guy... the kind who asks "now where did I put my sunglasses" when they're actually on top of his head. XD
    Awesome work on his design and the coloring!

  20. Martin is such a snappy dresser. Who could resist him? Do you know if he's married or seeing someone? I think he'd like my neighbor. Love the sky. It looks something like what I'm seeing from my window. Have a wonderful weekend.
