Here it is, the special painting I was talking about in the COMING SOON post a week or so ago. As the title says "POP", its my dad. This is a special image as it is the first real portrait I have ever done, but even more so........this is for my mom. Today is her birthday and this is her present. As of the writing of this she has not seen it, but will open it later today, I truly wish I could be there for it, but in some small way I am.
In this painting, I just wanted to pay tribute to my dad, whom I love and respect more than anyone I have ever met. When I grow up, I would like to be the man he is.
Through this painting I also wanted to say thanks to my mom, for all the encouragement, advice and love she gave us growing up and still does. She is my number one supporter and "fan", so this painting is for her. In some small way with this image I can start paying back some of what they ( mom and dad ) have done for me. I know I can never repay all they have done for me, but I can try and the first step is to say thank you. I would not be who I am without their efforts or help.
So thanks to both and HAPPY BIRTHDAY mom.
I love y'all.
