Forgive the pic...I think I took this through glass...so the colors are much more vibrant in person! lol
I originally posted this painting about two years ago. But, as I'm working on a commission for a person who has invented something and has a patent on it and I can't share that for legal reasons, AND because my dad has been on my mind a LOT the past few months I wanted to post it again! My dad is an awesome man. A gentle, but strong giant (stands over 6' 4" tall) who has Leukemia and was JUST diagnosed with Parkinsons disease as well STILL works as an attorney; assistant to the attorney general in the state where they live. He could have retired years ago, but kept on to help me pay for my beautiful daughter's wedding (the little one in the painting). He STILL goes to work every day and I hear is called the "wise one" as he is JUST that! They all come to him...and I'm bragging more now, but in his career only lost two cases! He works right now as a liaison for the attorney general's office to help kids that get into trouble as well as help the attny generals office when they get into scrapes! AWESOME DAD! My mom is an incredible woman as well...she has worked tirelessly making sure his diet and all he needs to stay strong are in place...and it has helped markedly! I love them both like crazy...Just a tribute to you dad...and to his beautiful helpmeet and partner in life...my mom!
