oil on canvas
Accepted, June 2004, in the judged show at the Torpedo
Factory Art League Gallery, Alexandria VA. Juror: Carolyn Carr.
Monroe posed for a painting group I sponsored in my basement studio.
Monroe, a Government employee, was also a poet and motorcycle afficianado
(hence the Harley Davidson belt buckle) who taught motorcycle safety at
NOVA on Saturdays. We later lost touch with him. I think this is an interesting
pose, the relaxed pose ofthe hands, the slight turn ofthe body, the slouch,
the colorful tablecloth. Someone should surely want to buy and cherish
this one! Probably just hasn't met the right person yet.
