THE BOYS


This was quite a challenge as I was asked to paint this double portrait with nothing but a 2x2 inch 20 plus year old snapshot to work from. My first thought was "no way" but, I gave it a try and it worked. You will have to take my word for it, but, it is a pretty good likeness of these two boys, who are both college graduates now. I surprised myself! 5x7 oil on canvas, NFS
