Description:This oil painting was done from a black and white photo only 2 inchs high and 1 inch wide. The photo was taken in the late 20s to early 30s. In the photo there is no background. I added the background to improve the feeling of the painting. This is an example of the portraits I can do even when there isn't a lot to work with. The client was very pleased and has ordred another painting to be painted of his mother. to see more of my artwork go to where there are 80 examples of my work.
Artist's Comments: Having a portrait painted is for most people a one time experience. A well done portrait will become a family heirloom that will be handed down for generations. I will make it a fun and exciting expereance.
