"Jah Youth Strikes a Pose" is a painting of a Jamaican beach hustler that I hired to model for me on one trip to Negril, Jamaica. I was walking down the beach looking for something to paint when he fell in beside me and started talking to me. He told me he had lots of artist friends and that he modeled for them. I thought that might be good. We went back to my hotel where there was a picnic table and bench where he promptly sat down and assumed the pose seen in the painting. He held the pose for two straight hours during which time I was able to get everything laid in and get a good likeness. I then finished the painting from photos at home. An interesting side note: my model goes by Jah Youth but his given name is Coswell Hillman.
