San Raphael

This is the finished painting of San Raphael. The painting is very large.This is a game they play to win gifts at the top of a pole, which is 3o feet high. The biggest obstacle is that the pole is greased with lard. I liked the tension on the arms and the unity it took to climb the pole .These are gang members and the coolest thing for me was the shaved head and a little piece of braided hair left on the back of his head. Enlarge to see. the painting is 4x8 feet and painted in oil.
