Capital Thinking Magazine - Spring/Summer 2009

This portrait of oil (and now wind power) magnate T.Boone Pickens is the latest one I produced for the "Q&A" column for Capital Thinking magazine.

I've been doing these quarterly portraits for a few years now, and they're always pretty relaxing to work on, because I already the know the look and the parameters of the portrait, and its just a matter of making the piece look as nice as possible.

I put a ornate pattern on Pickens' tie; looking back at it maybe I could've made it a little more prominent to give it a little more contrast. Geez, why didn't I see that at the time?
