Life Portrait of Robbie Ellis

Life Portrait of Robbie Ellis by Dominic White

Today's honored guest at Sunday Portrait group was none other than the Canvasman himself, Rob Elowitch. So named because of his double life as co-owner of the prestigious fine art auction house Barridoff Galleries, and as long time professional wrestler under the name, "Robbie Ellis." Seriously. You can't make this stuff up. He was a delight to draw and great to listen to. 11x14 oil pastel on paper.
