Portrait of George von Metzsch

George von Metzsch 2008    oil on linen     38x34”     collection of Ernst and Gail von Metzsch  

As you can see, George, is a big, fun, good looking rugby player, even bigger than his brother, Roland (number 34). It was fun painting him. I cannot imagine trying to tackle someone that big on an open field.  At one point he had a black eye that prevented me from working on this.
