This is one of my favorite paintings! I took a mini 'plein air' workshop at the Market in Roanoke last summer. It was the same day that I saw the man I painted for "Dark Sunglasses." This is the instructor/artist that was giving the class. I loved watching him paint. He was so relaxed and you could see that he enjoyed every minute of it. The heat of the day didn't even seem to bother him. What I was trying to capture is his gesture or stance, and I think it worked out pretty well.
