“The Gawker (At the Jefferson)”

“The Gawker (At the Jefferson)”, 12″ x 16″, oil on panel. October 2013.

This painting was inspired by a photo I took at the Jefferson Memorial.  The space is quite awe-inspiring, and dwarfs the visitors, who tend to walk around quietly, with an air of reverence.  When I saw this man, his pose, appearance  and expression caused me to snap his picture immediately… and fortunately, I caught him!

What I learned:  columns are harder than they look. 😉
