This is a larger piece I had been working on this week. I completed him on Thursday night and he now hangs in the office of Florida Congressman Thomas J. Rooney. They have given him a position of honor, in the foyer, next to the American Flag. He is the beloved son of a high school friend, and both of them graciously allowed me to paint him for this exhibit. I am both honored and grateful, and I thoroughly enjoyed painting Cody.
I will be working on a few larger paintings in the coming week and getting ready for the Florida Strawberry Festival Fine Art Show, of which Mike and I are co-chairs. I may not be posting daily, but please check back and see how things are going. I love doing the small dailies, even when I am occupied with larger works. I will squeeze them in where I can.
