Eli appeared as a visitor to my studio early on during the opening of the Pier.  He has a great smile (though you wouldn’t know it by my portrait) and is a great storyteller.  I was glad he volunteered to be painted by me.  His portrait was maybe the first time I used a white background which I liked very much and was no doubt inspired by the plain washed out yellow background I used on the painting of Sean.
