So here is the first thing I did out of art school. My buddy Cam Floyd left some nice 7 x 4 foot stretcher bars in the house, so I wrapped some pieces of Rives BFK around em and made this painting. The man and woman are meant to be male and female Flamenco dancers. The Flamenco dance is a style of music and dance associated with Spain although it is actually only native to the Andalusian gitanos (gypsies). But anyway the ladies always wear these big fancy dresses and someone is usually singin real loud and tearin it up on the guitar. All acrylic with charcoal drawing underneath.

This is another portrait I did for close friends of my family. Below is the full painting, and a picture of the woman whose portrait I did.
