Blue Dean

Hank WC
This is a watercolour that I did of my friend Dean (see his painted coconut two posts below) from a picture that I took in May, 2009. It has been a while since I've done a watercolour and I always thought that the photo I took of him (below) was one of my most successful portraits that I had ever taken.

My buddy, Dean, will be passing through again this weekend so I thought that I would surprise him with this painting. It probably won't be a surprise if he checks out my blog with any frequency, like a true friend would. But don't worry, I have plenty of other emotionally scarring surprises in store for him so it won't be the end of the world if this one is ruined.
