Dan

Number 3, broooos.

It’s Dan! Whoa! It’s kind of a crazy coincidence that we even ran into each other after, pffffft, like maybe 8 years? Whoa! Our places of work happened to overlap juuuust enough! Toronto is kinda crazy like that. I think CSI specifically, is very much like that. A lot of coincidences happen in that place. And I gotta say I’m pretty cool with this one.

Dan was the first person to sit on our new couch for a painting!! Even though all you can see of it is our old blanket which appears in quite a few of these paintings.

We also had a pretty intense conversation about economics, the government and used books. Which I am also pretty darn cool with.

It’s also important to note that this is the second time that yam fries have been served and consumed during a Lunch and a Portrait session. It may also be important to note that I did not have much else to offer in the way of food that evening… yup, just fries… sorry, Dan. I clearly dropped the ball on this one. The fries however, were pretty darn good.

From the painting of Greg to this one of Dan, I made a strong step forward painting a half-shaded face. That mid to dark range is kind of hard to achieve (at least with these paints?), and I think I definitely struggled with it in the painting of Greg. Yeah, keep on paintin’ on.
