I was given permission to paint this picture of this man, “Mud,” by a fellow blogger. This man is “a member of the ‘Aboriginal Tent Embassy’ “protesting for legal recognition of their status as the original first people.” I am really fortunate to paint this and I hope I will do him justice. This is the under-painting with oil on 12″ x 16″ Wood Panel. I am really looking forward to seeing how this will turn out. I love painting people that have a story to tell.
