Estes Park 2008. Leslie Allen Paints Me
Well, this was fun. Leslie Allen (a fellow member of PAAC) was set up behind me, and unbeknown to me, used me as her quick draw model; and a sweet job she made of it. I would have loved to have bought it at the auction but knew better than to get in the middle of the bidding - which got rolling quite quickly. In the end my friend Damon, a gallery owner form Columbus took it home. - Sigh. . .
Take a look at the hat; so expressive, so terse and decisive. Check out more of Leslie's work at www.allenfineart.com.
