My husband is a nurse at the local nursing home. He volunteered me to do a portrait demo. I asked Richard to be the model because he has a sense of humor and I could joke with him. This is a 16" x 20" acrylic. Acrylic would not have been my first choice for a portrait but because of some issues the residents my have with fumes from oil and dust from pastel acrylic was the safest. I also gave myself less than two hours to finish it. The experience was so positive that I also volunteered to do a painting demo at the assisted living residence. My husband made a frame for Richard and his remark was "That is probably the best part." I think Richard was the best model ever.
