Mr. Ralph McSwain
A large portrait of Dan's Grandfather. I asked him if I could paint his picture today and told him I'd take a photograph of him so that he wouldn't have to be bored stiff while I painted him. I included the round breakfast table in the portrait. He looks a little sad here, but that's to be expected because he just lost his wife of 71 years. I may darken the background a little later. Large stretched canvas size 24" x 30" oil paint.
