This is a painting I recently finished of my grandfather.  I didn’t really know him very well as he died when I was 5. But I do remember him vaguely as an old man sitting in a chair watching Lawerence Welk.  There were a lot of grandchildren in the family. Grandpa and Grandma had 8 kids and my dad was one of the younger ones. I wanted to paint a family member; to paint someone from the past – to remember and honor him.
