Marco, the Painting Barber



Marco is my barber.  Marco has been barbering for many years, the last decade or so here in Ocala.  He does a great job and has many great stories to tell. 

Marco is also a painter.  He's a very good painter.  The selections above are his paintings hanging on the wall of the barber shop.  He has just completed a still-life and now plans a painting ot none other than Charlie Chaplin.

His paintings are pretty impressive. But if he were my barber, he could do stick drawings so long as I got a good haircut.

How nice that he has such talent!

An artist is an artist...
A barber's shop is an ideal place to exhibit paintings (and also photographs).
I wonder if Macro has Italian origins...

Marco is indeed multi-talented, good luck to him.

He has a colorful face as does his customer…looks like relatives of Speaker Boehner. I hope the streaks on the sheet around the customer are not blood stains. I am more curious, than critical, really.

I do like his mustache though . Can he help me grow a successful one?

My compliments to your barber and friend!

Did he pass on you? He knows your head. You'd be an easy portrait.
Glad you have a good barber. I'll not comment further on them... you know my past with them. hahahaha

A multi-talented man. What a pleasure for you to know him.
