Tres' Skip

On display at the MV Museum through October are portraits done by artists and statements as to why they chose a particular person to draw, paint or photograph. Tres’ Skip is my portrait of Skip Finley done by scratching pan and wax pastels on white claybord. Here is my statement: “My painting “Tres’ Skip” pays homage to a multi-talented and enthusiastic Martha’s Vineyard advocate-Skip Finley. His public service and journalistic endeavors demonstrate a love for the Island as bountiful as his Island persona-one not easily captured in a single portrait. Hence, the bon vivant man about town, community activist, and chronicler of Island history and lore are but a few of his admirable traits. I’ve known Skip Finley for a few years now and chose to paint his portrait because I appreciate him for the reasons stated above.”

Still to be determined is the People's Choice competition and results will be unveiled at Featherstone Center for the Arts on November 8th. Voting is still open and to vote, go to https://islandfacescontest.wordpress.com/.

Wow, Harry! You can even see a small glimpse of his eyes under the sunglasses in the lower image. Fantastic work!

Oh My! I'm trying to do a face right now and struggling, big time...this looks so smooth and blended. It is just exquisite. Makes me wish I could meet this gentleman.

Re: Tres' Skip

Thank you Sandi, Jonc50, Obedec, and Tamara. This was a stretch for me but I learned a lot about the process I'm trying to master.
