Paintings: Pride III

"Pride III"
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! My thanks to R. Mount for modeling and glorious attire, which was both frustrating and a joy to capture (frustrating while in progress, a joy when at last the fur coat looked right!). The devil is in the details for this one, especially those that weren't captured in the reference photographs, like the glitter in R's beard and daintily heart-tipped nose.
