This is one of many portraits painted from life stored in my art closet,which I sorted through last weekend,and discarded some paintings and drawings. I need room for new paintings and drawings. I may have a sale of some of these paintings. This is a painted from a painting session I attended in the 1980’s.Oil on canvas.

I think this one could have been for a Sperry New Holland mailer. During the early 1970’s I did a lot of illustrations using Magic Marker brand felt markers.This one I discarded.This was probably based on a Mathew Brady photo.
