Paintings: Pride VII

"Pride VII"
11 x 14"
Acrylic on canvas

Love is love.

The model from the first "Pride" and several other friends suggested turning the idea into a series, so here we are! B., my first model, asked several friends to be involved in the series, and everyone agreed to meet as a group at my studio for reference photos. W. declared themselves a "chair person" and proceeded to pose in our dining room reading chair, with hilarious results. As I knew the sixth Pride painting would be an emotional affair, I purposefully saved W's for the seventh and last. It is the last, too, and it encapsulates the joy I've felt working on this project. My thanks to W. Edwards for modeling.
