My friend Joe is the man in the painting. We were assigned in our illustration class to paint a silhouette. I loved that illustration class, each painting that we did were based on a theme that frequents illustrations. It left much of the creativity up to us.
The stained glass window behind Joe is from the Crouse College building located at Syracuse University. Such a beautiful building with an amazing pipe organ located within it. Even though this was the furthest building for me to get to, I never really minded because of it's beauty.
Just a little FYI for everyone, Crouse College housed the first College for Fine Arts in the United States.
