it a 12x16 canvas done in acrylic
his name is bozoo chavis
do not know the man name in front of him. Bozoo is the black man with the white shirt.
My last painting some friend of mine took a photo on her phone and went to Houston and she showed it to her frind who in turn showed it to this black lady by her. The black lady freak out as that was her grandpa. She then called her kin people and they all freaked out too lol.
So I painted this one . Just hope it got legs.

the photo is mine as i took it around 2005 in Lafayette, Louisiana. I used it as a refer photo. I try to get the spirit of the image and not a real look to it.

C&C is welcome.

And a great painting. All your work has a certain tangible vibrancy. That is a difficult reference and you handled it very well! :wave:

People are like that Jocko. That's why it's always best to get paid before they walk out the door. :lol:
