(And a rare shot of me working!)
This piece was a special commission to honor a lost loved one. The man had served in the Marines and after his sudden and untimely death, his niece wanted a commemorative painting, as well as matted prints to give as gifts to her family. Her grandmother, the man's mother, received the original painting. It was a very special gift for her loved ones.
I always love it when I have the chance to not just make something beautiful, but also meaningful. So, I'm happy to now offer a larger format painting specifically for military portraits. You can find the listing in my Etsy shop.
