Carlo with his flowers

When I first saw Carlo at the farmer's market, a number of possibilities for paintings and drawings came to mind and I continue to pursue them. I am enjoying the continuity of the subject while finding ways to present him in a new light. Zinnias are what I came home with most from his stand and they provided a wonderfully colorful backdrop to set Carlo against. The painting became as much a still life as a portrait.
