12×9 original pastel on sanded La Carte paper,

Despite being decked out with colors and feathers, this man is manly.  He is confident.  He is sure.  He leads.  He is in charge.  I have had many exchanges with my friends who have masculine husbands — I mean the kind with full-on testosterone.  Though it has its setbacks, the benefits far outweigh the negatives.  They fight.  They win.  They accept a challenge.  They protect.  They provide.  What’s not to love?  So, when I see a man who can pull off feathers, bright colors, or even a kilt, I am intrigued enough to paint.
