Bonding in Carmel

Oil on canvas

I caught this photo while visiting one of my favorite places -- Carmel, California. I spied this dad and his little guy sharing a special moment and knew immediately I would want to paint them.

Oil on canvas
16" x 16"
I haven't posted in awhile.  I've been doing a little painting (not much) -- nothing finished to my liking.   So, I thought I'd share a few paintings that I did awhile ago.  This one is of Gino Hollander, a renowned artist now in his 90s-plus.  I was fortunate enough to meet him and his lovely wife, Barbara, through a mutual friend.  He took me aside and did a quick painting/sketch of me, which I've posted below.  Below that is the original photograph that I used for reference.  And here is his website:  http://www.hollanderart.com/  He's a fascinating man whose had a fascinating career!
