Gustavo on Blue
© 2017 | Oil on Canvas
When I first met Gustavo, I was struck at how hard his appearance looked. With cropped hair, discerning eyes, and resolute black t-shirt, he is the epitome of classic masculinity.
Interacting with him, I valued his keen eye for design and desire for meaning within the Graphic Arts.
During a meeting, when he found out I was a painter, he asked if I had any samples. With trepidation, I handed over my iPhone only to be greeted with an approving smile and surprised smirk.
Acknowledgment from peers is best compliment an artist can hope for.
