    I'm a painter working in a photorealist style looking for the subject
    of my next painting. My technique is to try to copy as closely as
    possible the photograph, so the viewer of the painting has to study the
    painting closely to determine if it is really a painting. (I know, I know....why would I want to do that??)

    I'm looking for a color photograph to work from for my next painting.
    Some subjects I might be interested in would include: urban landscapes,
    storefronts, street scenes, small town life, automobiles, abandoned
    buildings, honky-tonks, blues clubs, old Hawaii small town buildings,
    etc. Shots can be with or without people in them. I'm looking for an
    image that works well as a photograph since I won't be changing
    anything about its composition or color. My preferences lean more to
    gritty realism.
    I'm sorry I can't pay for the rights to paint your photo, but I'll be
    sure to send you a photograph of the finished work. If you're
    interested in showing me your work and participating in this project, please e-mail me at
