Earl Sison was one of the first people I considered to be part of this series … and was one of the last to be painted.
With a larger than life personality, Earl easily draws people into his sphere. His good nature and positive outlook keeps them in there.
Originally, I had wanted to paint him on a larger canvas. But when I couldn’t find an affordable studio space, I put his portrait on the back-burner with hopes that a workplace would materialize.
By the time I got to him in the queue, the quatrefoil was already an established element – and it seemed fitting to surround him with such a captivating motif.
