Martin Arnold artist

I saw an absolutely fabulous painting at the museum I was at last week, “Shawanda” by Martin Arnold.  He was one of the artists that got a purchase award at the exhibit. 
I believe he is a teacher at the university of northern Alabama (USA)
I was just stunned at this painting.

His emphasis is portraits.

The two reds that he uses for the background and shirt are close in value but they work so beautifully.  And the strong contrast with the pants and hair are striking. But most of all the sitter has a great I can handle anything attitude.  

I thought everyone on the forum might enjoy seeing this, especially those working on portraits.
