This is my Brother-in-law Bert. I went to my studio and nothing was talking to me. I have lots of paintings and sketches , all in different states. None were going to work today. So, as an Artist I have 100's of reference photos and 100's more ideas spinning around in my brain. I started looking through my pictures on my computer when this picture spoke to me. I could hear Bert with his deep gruff voice saying to me. "You There, Paint me Next" There was now way to say no. And really this picture has been in my file years. I knew I would use it sometime. Funny how we get our inspiration. Or maybe I should say thanks Bert for the Motivation.
