studio visit with Rob Francois / by Monique Crine

Had a fabulous afternoon with Rob Francois as he visited my studio to see his portraits from my 2015 exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Critical Focus: Monique Crine. The series was titled Eden Prairie

Rob posed for me in Minneapolis, MN as he recovered from an injury sustained during his career as a linebacker for the NFL. He last played for the Green Bay Packers who he won Super Bowl XLV with against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rob was signed by the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2009 after playing college football at Boston College. He's now a recruiter for the Kansas City Cheifs. 

Such an incredibly wise and powerful soul. Couldn't have asked for a better subject or friend.
