A Gift Given

Two weeks ago, a friend of mine, Norman Daigneault celebrated his 80th birthday (albeit a little early) at a semi-surprise party. His daughters Ann, Joyce, and Mary began planning the event in January, and as soon as I heard about their plan, I wanted to help them make it a special day. I thought it would be nice to present Norman with a painting of him and his wife.

Here is the final result:

The painting is acrylic and measures 16" x 20". Both the older and younger versions of Norman and his wife Laurel were taken from the scores of photos that I scanned for a movie slideshow that was shown at the party.

Perhaps I will attempt more human likenesses in the future. If so, this will be the place to see them.

Until next time,
