Whitney Museum vendor

This very kind man was selling African Art in front of the Whitney Museum in Manhattan.  He had such a nice pose so I took his photo.  He knew I was taking his picture so he smiled then I took it again when he wasn't.. lol
Maybe some of you have seen him!

  1. I can see why you wanted to paint him Hilda. He has a kind and interesting face with his salt and pepper beard... and so relaxed. Neat the way you captured the soft knit of his hoodie next to his jacket. Another winner, my friend.

  5. Bonjour chère amie,

    Une photo prise sur le vif ! Comme tu as bien fait... Elle a permis que tu puisses réaliser une oeuvre magnifique. Ce que tu as ressenti au moment du "clic" se ressent dans ta peinture. Un portrait qui a une âme. Travail MAGNIFIQUE !

    Gros bisous et bon week-end 🌸
