On the glorious 4th of July, as a special event of the Village Gallery for First Friday, I sat at a table by the south entrance and offered to exchange 5 minutes of portraiture, graphite on deckle-edged 8″ x 10″ 90-pound Stonehenge paper, for $5 a pop. There were only a handful of pops, it being the 4th of July and dramatically cloudy to boot. But here is a nice passage of moments, photography courtesy of my gallery colleague Lenore, modeling courtesy of Pat, a sweet lady I met through my job.
If I do it again, I’ll offer 10 minutes for $10. Five minutes goes by too fast!
