Pastor Chuck from Life

A 78 year old retired Pastor named Chuck was our model this morning at the Portrait Group. He's a farmer and he posed with a pitchfork and a straw hat. Unfortunately the pitchfork kept changing position as he grew tired so I painted it out. Nice prop but not needed as I was able to get the character of the gentleman down in about 90 minutes.
