Well Pressed Shirt, in progress, 16×20 inches. South Dakota portrait paintings.

This is the owner of the dry cleaning business in Brookings, SD. My son and I wnt in to pick up my husband’s suit, and when I saw him using this steaming press I was completely enthralled and asked if I could take source photos for painting. What do you think?

I’m going to live with the painting for a couple days, and then I think I’ll make his jeans and boots much darker; work out the values in the bottom 1/3 of the painting…
