    This is priceless, Dan!

  • Thank you so much Linda. The photo I worked from is about 7 years old, my son is going to turn 8 in December. I only recently did the painting( about 2 years ago) as a gift on Fathers day for my Dad.The painting means a lot to me as my Father has had some serious health issues lately. he is battling a form of leukemia and hodgkins. The treatments of chemo and radiation have taken there toll on his body and aged his appearance greatly over the last year. The painting helps remind me of how things once were and of days in the past that were better for him.
