Portrait of Elliot

This is a portrait which I just began of Elliot. It is in the initial block in stage. This is a commission for a family here in Tucson who came through my studio at one of our open studio weekends a couple of years ago and purchased one of my landscapes. They came back a few weeks later and added another one of my paintings to their collection. They have since become great friends with me and my wife. I am now working on portraits of their sons and grandchildren.
