Portrait of Henry








Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 18"x24" SOLD

This is a commission. I was given specific personal items that represent the person (Henry). I love doing pieces like this. When his family and friends look at this painting they know it's him because they know these are his things. I'm not usually one for whisky but painting this made my mouth water.

I am still painting like crazy for the Susan Powell show coming up on November 9th. I will be flying out the Madison, CT for the opening. If you are in that area, please plan on stopping by. Stay tuned for new work from that show! I'll be posting them in the coming weeks.

I love the idea. Brilliant way to remember someone--and you did a brilliant job once again. Have a great show.

Well this just blew me away when I saw it. Just the sort of subject I love to paint - only clearly you are far better at it than I am, lol! ;0)

Stunning painting. Funny how you can paint a portrait of someone without showing the person.

I love still life portrait pieces, too. They are like a riddle that only those near to the portrayed know the answer.

Great idea. I have been thinking of doing a similar painting for a friend of mine who enjoys Jack Daniels. Good work!
