My Dad

I started this portrait last April while visiting my Dad in Hawaii- it only got to the rough state. The other night I attempted to finish- and still have a way to go, but I think I captured a bit of his sparkle. I am inspired by Rose Frantzen .
She set out to paint a town!
I e-mailed Rose and she  kindly gave me her palette- so I bought some new colors!
I am considering painting everyone in my family-hmmmmm- a great idea - not a lot of marketing potential- but it would be so fun!

I think you must have captured his likeness because I can see you in him!!
He's a silver fox :D

Sally, this is your best portrait ever. Not only did you capture his looks, but the pleasure with which he looks at you. An altogether outstanding job! Congrats
