Portrait of Alex Schaefer

At the Hive Gallery opening last month, I finally painted Alex. He's an Art Center teacher and resident artist at the Hive Gallery, always painting 20 min. live portraits during the openings. After sitting for him, he let me have my turn to paint him. The lighting there was challenging, but I tried my best to capture his happiness. He inspires me to paint from life and appreciate all my efforts, and what my eyes see.
