“Veterans Day”

I just love painting old people. Their stories are expressed in every line and wrinkle. This gentleman allowed me to photograph him during a Veterans Day parade, and a black-and-white snapshot became my reference. I added my own hues and colors, trying to allow a weathered feeling and a sense of time and personal history to come through.
