The Matador

I was recently contacted by artist Chuck Larivey about this photo that I had taken some time ago. He wanted to use it as reference for a painting. As an artist myself, of course I said yes! And the result is gorgeous. He rendered it beautifully and I think it's much more beautiful than the photo. Check out his website when you get a chance, he's a great painter and a real professional.

Painting info: "641 Matador" 48" x 48" oil on linen canvas
