"Why don't I paint him?" thought I. Immediately I made a U-turn with my car and pulled into the park. As I walked toward him, I asked, "Excuse me, sir, but how long are you going to stay here?" "15 minutes, maybe a half hour at most. Why?" I said, "If you give me an hour, I'd like to paint you." He laughed and agreed, "OK. I thought you needed my space to have a party or something." So I quickly got my kit from the trunk and set up. I also set my timer for exactly an hour and started painting him right away.
The guy was very friendly. His name was Jeff and he came from Michigan.
