My Face of Ventura project delivers the most interesting of sitters to my studio door. I knew from the very first time I met Bill, the local postmaster in town, who is known by EVERYONE, that I wanted to paint him.
This man of letters has had a long career in the U.S. Post Office. It took him a while to think about being painted by me. I was very blessed when he said yes. Now, I have a new friend and a deeper respect for the old charming ways of snail mail.
Post those letters folks!
YOu can catch my series each week in The Ventura Breeze newspaper and on talk radio's Lyn Fairly and Friends Show, KVTA 1520 AM , Saturdays at noon.
