"War of Art" Period

This 17" x 14" piece took me nearly a year and a half to complete. This was due in part to the amount of detail I put into the portrait, but the large size was a contributing factor. The model is my son.

Dedicated to Maurice F. Sanfaçon
1933 - 2009

My father knew I'd started this piece in July 2008, just one month after he'd been diagnosed with Lung Cancer. He passed away on October 16, 2009, seven weeks before the portrait was completed.
