"The Veteran" 2009
Oil on canvas 16" x 20"
Commission by a daughter of her father who served in the US military during WWII and given to him for Father's Day .
Also showing the reference photo. This was a difficult task for me. Inventing the colors, change his shirt color and change his badges and bars to reflect a rank after the photo was taken all took time. I hope you enjoy the result.
