My Hero - Daddy is Home
16 x 20
Oil on Raymar Panel
Sketch for larger piece/NFS
While visiting my son and his wife on a military base last summer I was fortunate to catch some touching moments between some military members and their families. This is one such moment. This dad had just gotten home from work and I could feel the love as he hugged his daughters. I did this quick sketch in anticipation of doing a larger piece using some or all of these figures.
The look the youngest daughter is giving her father is the one that completely stole my heart. Not only do I love the feeling it gives me, as an artist I love the angle of her head and the lines in her jaw and neck. Such a beautiful angle.
