From The Vault: Monuments - 2006

These are five unfinished portraits I was commissioned to do for one of my regular clients, Charles Schwab On Investing magazine. At the time, though, I had not done any work for CSOI before, so this was the first time I had ever dealt with them.

They asked me to work up these roughs, and some are a little rougher than others. A week or so afterward, CSOI called to tell me the whole project had been canceled, so I didn't need to go any further.

Thankfully, CSOI settled up with me for the work I had done, and little did I know it was the beginning of a very good relationship between the magazine and I.
