Gregorio, from San Miquel Allende, Mexico, was visiting Atlanta with his family. News of our wet summer had obviously traveled many miles because Gregorio came prepared to protect his prized possession. As you might have noticed, Gregorio has a rain jacket covering his cowboy hat. I bumped into Greogrio in the entrance to a parking garage in downtown Atlanta when I ran to take cover as the skies opened up. When I noticed the plastic cover protecting his cowboy hat I knew I had to create a portrait of this proud gentleman.
