After finishing this painting, I invited my subject Nicolas Zamudio into my studio in Tiburon. We were both very excited when I unveiled the painting, and he absolutely loved it. Nicolas was an Oyster Farmer, who used to work and live at the now closed Drakes Bay Oyster Farm, at the Point Reyes National Seashore, California. It was such a pleasure and honor painting the portrait of Nicolas.
