"The Veteran" by Gordon van Vliet

"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.

Or on the other hand you should need to utilize open travel to navigate the city after you are subsided into your inn room. However, with a rental auto you're ready to investigate Islamabad on your coveted timetable; leasing an auto gives you more freedom amid your escape. Rent a car in Islamabad Say farewell to being held to the transport course and howdy to the advantages of a private ride.
