This one is called “All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go.” This was drawn during my blue period. Joseph V Osmond was my muse during this time and he modeled for me for a series of drawings. This one has won numerous awards.

In this painting entitled “Joseph ponders why the blue-bellied Hoatzin flies” We get a rare glimpse into one of Joseph’s most beloved hobbies. We feel close and at ease with this lovely gentleman while still aware of his most regal and defining presence.

    Hyrum – Masterfully done! I love how the back hair invokes Joe’s ability to throw caution whilst turmoil abounds and the bird represents the freedom Joe feels when he has a clean bottom.
