"The Singing Butler"
|Clothes for the photo shoot--much fun was had shopping for these.|
The night before the photo session: The Craigslist model emailed to tell me her car was having "issues" (her word.) I offered to drive... she accepted and then she promptly disappeared. Doh! So, the first photo session had to be cancelled and I was stuck with a bunch of size 4 clothes and no model.
Then I remembered Facebook! My FB friend Tim Herron was a participant in a life drawing workshop I took a while back. He runs a Cleveland group called The Pretentious Tremont Artists and he helped me find Carli Cichoki! Not only was Carli a size 4 and able to fit the clothes, she was tall too! Perfect as my Husband is 6' 6"

|I took hundreds of photos and will revisit them for future paintings.|
So, without further ado, here is the final painting.
