Apollo Picture

Watercolors on Strathmore, painted from life in 2006. When I lived in Savannah, there was this gorgeous super-tall guy that would always bike around and one day I got the courage to ask him to pose for me. This was painted then. It was a fleeting acquaintance, I would love to run into him again. I was doing a lot of Greco-Roman influenced stuff at the time, so I sort of imagined him as Apollo the sun god. Looking back, he could even be Hermes, but divine one way or the other for certain.
