Double Whammy

That painting of Hunter sparked a bit of interest around the water cooler at work, as I had hoped… Yessss. Well, I mean I could see the water cooler from where I was standing at the time, but it doesn’t really have anything to do with the story. I work at a bike shop, not an office. Uh, bam.

Anyhow, that led to the painting of a painting of Aidan! Oh hey, Aidan.

We're totally bros.

Ok, to be fair, Aidan moved a lot. Am I complaining? No. I’m just saying. I like a challenge. As far as the lunch goes, well… there was coffee drank and there was cookies eaten. Is that a lunch? Definitely. Awesome! Thanks, bro!

BUT THEN, since it was my day off, I had to pack ’em in, so about an hour after Aidan left, Jaime showed up for round two! Two rounds of round two, actually… The second appearance of Jaime for a casual portrait sitting!

the next time I paint Jaime might have to be over Skype...

So it just so happened to work out that both sittings were at my apartment, and they both sat (I didn’t say a word, I just let it happen, I swear!) in exactly the same spot. Which led to some cooooool lighting effects. Aidan definitely has a morning light thing going on, and Jaime has a much more diffused afternoon/early evening light. Pretty, pretty cool. WHEW! What a day!! Thanks, guys! Oh sorry… thanks, bros!!

Oh yeah, so Jaime and I had a good old pub meal and a beer afterwards, with lunch and a portrait vet, Devin, and soon-to-be-painted, Vanessa. HA! You’re obligated now, bro.

More to come soon! I skipped out on a bunch of other stuff to bring you this hyper-update! I’m just cool like that.

YAM FRIES! …I mean, Hunter!

Oh hey again.

SO! The next lunch and a portrait had a heck of a lot of lunch involved… And, coincidentally, a portrait. It was Hunter! A good ol’ boy that I work with. Check it out!

That's a pretty deep V, bro.

Man, good lunch. Hyped-up yam fries (but not over-hyped, they lived up to it), soy nuggets (what’s wrong with that?), coffee (thermos-served… so classy), seaweed (dried and from Korea… bam), and ice cream no less (don’t get me started on the ice cream, bros)! Bam. That’s a bam.

That’s a lunch and a portrait, I tells ya what.
