PLATFORM IG Post_1.jpg

The Magnificent Mr. Winzo

This piece of art was created specifically for the Orlando Museum of Art in the hope that it would be displayed at a Platform event.  One day travelling down W. Colonial, I saw this interesting homeless man at a local 7-Eleven store. 

I asked if he would allow me to take his picture, and he said sure "and get my good side."  Every side was a good side. 

I offered to buy him lunch, but he only wanted water.   So, I wondered what to draw for the Platform event, indeed he came to mind two years later.   Thus, we have The Magnificent Mr. Winzo, because he was a wonderful person, so kind and polite.  I felt honored to take his picture with that beautiful smile.
