"Wayne"

Graphite on Bristol Board. Approx 8"x11"

This is my wife's father, Wayne. I did this portrait for her Mom. It is a bit overdue, but then again, I have a number of portraits in my 'to do' pile that have been sitting a while. This is a great photo of him. It really conveys that glimmer he had. Stay tuned this week, as I will have a number of small paintings coming up.

This is wonderful, I'm sure your wife's mom is going to love it. Can't wait to see your next paintings!

Michael, I totally enjoy your work. Last night I spend a big chunk of time prowling through your blog and had to go make myself a PB&J. Being myself of the generation which found it's youthful days in the abstract expressionist phase of American art, I am so encouraged to see young artists like yourself devoted to Realism. What the abstractionists never understood (and still doesn't today) is the power of expression inherent within the image when painted honestly. Keep up the good work and congratulations on bringing little Lucy into the world.
