I painted this in July and forgot to include it in the blog Better late than never.
Meeting friends in downtown Chapala and walking the malacon after dinner, I spotted this young man in a crowd, meandering his way through the restaurant umbrellas. I did not see his face but he had a quick step of happiness in his stride.
Of course, I had to paint him. I loved the way he casually slung the guitar over his back and he was definitely walking with a purpose. I wondered, “was this before or after a gig?”
It’s a treat to see he wore a pink shirt and straw hat. Of course! Thank you kind sir for your happy stride.
