Acrylic on wood panel.
I was honored to be asked, and what was best about this was when i asked Gary when he wanted to see sketches, he said to just send him the finish, and "do the piece that you have always wanted to do."
So i spent the next couple of days stressing out, and over-thinking the whole thing. As i was going over the different ideas in my studio, i kept looking over at the half finished painting on my easel that i started three months ago, but never had the chance to finish.
On another note- I know it is kinda late to be posting things that realte to fathers day, but Nancy Stahl (thanks Nancy!) alerted me to a tribute on the Jim Lehrer News Hour by Paul Solman to his dad.
