Portrait of the Sculptor, Frederick L. Gregory by 

Oil on Linen
I posted this earlier but this is the first actual full view of the painting and a far better photograph of same.
Rick Gregory is a local boy, granite sculptor who works in huge monolithic pieces some with waterfalls, bit of a wild man. On the winning America’s Cup team years ago. They landed in Brazil, and as he recalled, absolutely owned the country. At one of a zillion celebratory parties he met and then married a Miss Brazil, travels between there and California. Gallery in Big Sur, work all over the globe.
I thought him Apollo like, and painted him that way, fist full of blueprints. He does work large.

Professional Expressionist, portrait painter, writer, children’s book illustrator, entrepreneur, and adventuress.

    Very strong work with his hand of equal or possibly even greater importance than that of his face.

  • Thank you, Philip. The differences that appear on the hands of adults who have formed their lives with the work they do has always fascinated me; and yes same for our faces.
