Original
Oil on canvas

SOLD

Original.  Once in a great while, a painting takes on its own life.   I finished an earlier version of this painting and a dear collector/friend had phoned and said that this was the painting he'd been looking for his son.  My husband and I were out the door to dinner and upon return, PayPal notified me that the painting had been paid.  I assumed it was my collector/friend.  But it was a new collector !   I telephoned my collector/friend and left the decision with him ... adding I would paint another version nearly twice the size.  I must admit, bigger is better !
