Painting a Butler to the stars.

Richard Chesterfield
Butler to the stars, Housewives of Beverly Hills
by Johanna Spinks
Oil, 16x16

If you have watched Bravo TV's Housewives of Beverly Hills, you might recognize this dapper chap.  Richard Chesterfield is my Face of Malibu, appearing in this week's Malibu Times. To read more about his interesting life story click here

Each sitter is painted from life in a single sitting recording the current day face of Malibu in portrait paint. I completed the Face of Ventura, 58 sitters all recorded in the same way. That collection is now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Ventura County.
