A long way from home

Added on by Julio Labra.

I decided to paint another portrait of my friend Dylan Weiler. He's been living out here in SoCal for the past year and missing the hell out of Michigan. I can relate because I have so much love for the Midwest. I miss the seasons, the cost of living, the calmness, and most of all my friends and family. In this regard Dylan and I are very similar. We are both explorers investigating a new environment and learning about the inhabitants. So I decided to paint him in a cosmonaut suit! I deemed it appropriate because it's not his style to be a scuba diver. Sometimes it felt like encountering an alien species! Nothing against California, but it's no place like home.
