Tim is my dear hippie boyfriend. I wanted to practice getting faster in executing portraits from life and so he sat for me. He is into yin yoga and meditation and one would think he is from the beaches of California as he loves the ocean and body surfing. I got him to sit still watching the soccer championships so his eyes are not focused on me but in the game. It was very important to me to capture those beautiful blue green eyes that are striking in person. Those eyes say it all…peace, kindness, and generosity. He raises money for students scholarships for those that can’t afford it as well as meals on wheels for them. I wanted to capture the hippie yoga soul with a sensitivity in the eyes. The imaginative loose summer day background are his favorite colors put on by scraping, sanding, and dripping with tools. He is calm but the background has movement…his energy of a Sagittarius is always moving in all directions!
