Oil on linen – 18 x 11 inches – Private Collection
I’ve known John since college. After he sat for me for free so I could paint Reflections In The Green Room as a student at The Atelier, I thanked him with this portrait of him with Doug, his partner of over forty years. They requested that I keep this looser than my usual work. The title refers to Doug’s love of opera and John’s involvement with theatre as both actor and director.
