(Acrylic Painting)

Grandpa Jim was born on March 16, 1921. Among his children one of his daughters was born on the 16th of May. This daughter gave birth to his grandson Zach, on September 16, 2000. The original portrait painting was presented to him at his 80th birthday celebration in 2001. Jim is approaching his 90th birthday this year on March 16, 2011.

I enthusiastically love playing with art, exploring new mediums and new things with old mediums! Started when I could hold a pencil and am still going.
