Mr G (l) (2009)

Oil on canvas
30 in. x 24 in.
This work was done as one of
many portraits commissioned by Mr. G (ll). The best part of it
was that I grew up knowing
Mr. G from a very young age.
He was an extraordinary man
with a heart of gold.
This painting was done in the
style of Old Masters with
months and months of glazing
and more glazing. The reason
this work turned out to be so
realistic is due to the good
quality and size of the photo-
graph I worked from and also
because it was done out of love.
We lost Mr. G a few years
ago and Heaven gained a true angel.
Mr G
