"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.

Thank yo for your comments. They are much appreciated.

I have to remove this until after Father's Day. Then I will post it again.

You always can publish something absorbing that does not waste minutes of your life like what you see on countless other sites
