Rudy Cheeks

Something of a local celebrity in newspapers/radio/music, Rudy Cheeks's nick name reflects his surprisingly magenta skin tones. Amazing colors to try to capture.

Oil, 11 x 14 inches

I'm off to Evergreen, Colorado for the weekend where I'll be attending the opening of the Oil Painters of America National Juried Exhibit of Traditional Oils. My painting, Ukulele, is included in the exhibit. If your in the Denver/Evergreen area come say hi and see the show!


  1. Congratulations on the exhibit!

    I like the looseness and energy of this painting.

  2. Yes, congratulations. Your deliberate but loose strokes show how expert you are at portraiture. I hope I can come somewhere close to your handling of the paint. Inspiring.
