Father

My father died 1,5 year ago and I still wanted to paint his picture, my way to say goodbye to him. First I made some drawings to practice. Then I drew the sketch on the linen with charcoal. I painted with acrylic paint.

It was as if my father was with me, as he appeared on the linen in person. Now his portrait stands in the living room, and he is watching me. Tomorrow on the fist day of Christmas 2012, I will give it to my mother. I hope she likes it, since it is very confronting. You recognize his character with naughty eyes and kind smile in the portrait.
