Grandpa

10" x 8", oils and charcoal pencil

This is a portrait I finished today of my Grandpa. He founded a fruit orchard seventy-five years ago or so and to this day works his land. He is the strongest man I know! This picture is how I will always remember him - dirty jeans and a shovel in his hand. This painting is a gift for my mother for Christmas.

The contrast is very striking and the pose is stoic. Very good!
