Pirate portraits

Here are some forty minute portrait studies painted by Frank Gardner, from San Miguel Mexico. In the evenings we have been painting portraits, mostly of each other. The top row is
Ian Factor and Colin Page, the second row is me and Logan Hagege.


Tonight was the opening of the show at the Addison gallery. Here are some pictures of the guys that were still here for the opening. We all go home tomorrow, after two weeks of work.

Here is Jerome Green with his painting behind him.

Here is Ian Factor.

Colin Page poses in front of his painting of the boats tied up on the wharves.

Paul Schulenberg poses with one of our lovely models.

Mary;
Would you like me truss one up and mail him to you? Not Colin Page though, he is too big for anything other than drop ship by freight. He towers over me.Ignat Ignatovs are easily transported and pack a lot of bang for the buck.Lipkings are hard to subdue, they are wicked big too.

Looks like a great way to end a wonderful experience.
Curious about the framing? Did they bring their own?
