Another racetrack-inspired portrait, this guy plays a mean call to post. I talked to him, and he unfortunately only plays at the racetrack for special events. On the other racing days, he and many like him have been replaced by a bugle recording. He was dressed up for the day (it was a stakes race), right down to the bowler hat and fine red vest, starched shirt and collar. Between his fancy clothes, his facial expression, and the way the light came down on his face – for me, this was a portrait waiting to be painted.
