Ronnie

Ronnie from ShreveportWe knew Ronnie when we were in high school. He was not. He was from Shreveport and lived on West Gray in Houston with other Shreveporters. He had the longest fingernails of anybody I ever knew. I did a lot of people sketching in those days and convinced him to sit still in that old vinyl chair long enough for me to make a sketch. Then I left for art college and this was one of my first paintings there.
The painting is 36″ x 40″, oil on canvas.
