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 www.rapier-art.com 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.
