Alla Prima Portrait: Gene

This morning I went to Punt Gorda to paint together with the Portrait Studio group. Today's model is Gene, a very nice gentleman who told me that he was in his 80s, but certainly didn't look it. He seemed to be very healthy and physically strong. He told us he was flying his plane not long ago. Everybody liked him. He donated to the Center what he earned by sitting for us as a model. His wife Nancy also volunteered at the Center and worked at the library. Hope you like my painting. Gene liked his portrait and said he could easily picked it out of a lineup. I took it as a compliment.
