These small paintings were exercises in loosening up. It will be obvious how elements of them come together to form the larger piece. I still paint these little canvas boards. They are great for
priming my creative juices. Frequently it is the studies I relish over the major work.
This is Cory, Waylan's partner. Maybe 21, shy, quiet but happy to pose while Waylan schmoozed and performed.
I like to think I captured a little of who these people were, and you could get to know them.
