Xiuhtecuhtli



Xiuhtecuhtli 20"x14" watercolor

I met X. about three years ago and knew right away I needed to paint his portrait. He's an amazing young man on the verge of change. His eyes really are the color of turquoise and has a spirit of youthful fire and true depth. May you remain good and kind and discover your history and depth of soul as you grow.

Can't paint any better than that, it's perfect!(as usual) I think you and Rogger Oncoy have this style of portraiture sewn up. Tight!

Wonderfully done, Pablo--congratulations!

Thank you Vicki, Micah, Chris, Robin, Nick and Don!

This one was especially satisfying, all of those colors are among my faves to work with. The hair took a little longer this time cause of the texture of a crew cut.

I may work on some still lifes for the next couple of paintings (glass maybe) just to mix it up again.

Thanks again everyone for taking the time to visit. . . I'll see you around cyber space as the kids are going back to school which means more time to paint and visit all of you!
