I looked up ‘anti-heroes’ and feel that this young man would not mind being grouped together with movie characters like Jason Bourne, Michael Corleone, Gordon Gekko & Deadpool…. as such portrait 14 is a pretty spot-on snapshot of my oldest offspring. Even as a youngster watching Disney movies Josh related more with the shadier characters like Captain Hook and Scar, and once old enough to articulate it relegated the good guys (Peter Pan, the good-hearted Simba) as `pussies`. Hey, he just came out that way. Despite this, he`s still a good human being, an incessant entrepreneur, (if you`re looking for some online nutrition & physique training hit him up,) and a bit of a world traveller to boot. Like any good villain he likes to stay on the move… Stay safe my son!
Portrait 13: The Lisch Family Marching Band (& Woody)
This is a family that does together. Even joining a bagpipe marching band. When they pulled the two wooden boxes from the back of the truck my curiosity was piqued, and to my delight I was treated to some other-worldy squeaks and honks during their portrait time as a spontaneous practice session ensued. Thank you Lisch family for enriching my studio space with your artful noise!!
Back at it! Portrait number 12, Quinn and Rosie. This young man, besides being a big ‘ol sloppy-hearted dog lover and an excellent chef, is also a great entrepreneur; not only is he part of the family business Blue Moon Winery, (which many of you may recognize as the home of the fabulous Raven’s Moon Ciders), he also operates his own very successful mobile apple press and is always planning (and doing) what he needs to do to take that next step. Oh and even though is face is buried in Rosie’s shiny fur coat, he’s also quite handsome.
