Sitting with Cactus

"Everything is an art supply" -Mitch Goldstien

Everyday items make the best ideas for paintings.

In the garden outside my studio was this wonderful old butcher block which had been repurposed. I walked by this weathered and worn table daily and thought it would make a great model stand. It was oversized an awkward, but we had a lot of fun working with it. Unfortunately for Daniel the cactus plant that usually rested there made it uncomfortable to hold a pose. Modeling is not an easy job and I appreciated his time and effort. 

Thanks for Posing Daniel!
