Oil on Raymar Panel
The loss of a parent is something I cannot begin to imagine. Both my parents are doing well, still traveling quite a bit and enjoying life. I am doubly blessed and I know it. I guess that is the reason my heart breaks when I hear of a friend who's has suffered this loss. It is inevitable but I cannot imagine being prepared for it.
That leads me to this portrait. A much loved father who has enjoyed a wonderful life and now leaves precious memories to his loved ones.
I did this quick sketch to celebrate his life and possibly put a smile on someone's face...someone who loves him.
