I haven't painted in a long time. Now, I want to make a serious go at it. This is someone from my workplace, Tayvon Murray Wilkerson. I painted it from the photograph I took below of him. I want his image to be a part of my "Affairs of the Heart" series which will be a series about the game of love. I have an idea of how I want to portray him but the idea didn't come to me until I actually began painting him. Funny thing is, he's not going to end up being a painting at all but a quilt in the series, much like the one I did of Ajani Sekou (aka Todd) but more of an idea of the "game" versus just a portrait. We shall see. More on that later.
I know I have a lot to learn as far as painting technique and skills, but I think this is a good starting point. It seems I learned something in my two painting classes in college. I will post attempt number two when I finish it.
