Father's Day - "Portrait of the Artist's Father" - Saint Louis, Missouri

I painted this portrait of my father over fifteen years ago, just after he passed, as a gift for my mother.

At the time, I was teaching at the Kansas City Art Institute, so I was lucky enough to be able to spend a lot of time with him during my summer vacation. In some ways, I've become more like him as I've aged, but why don't I have that same head of hair?

Happy Father's Day to all!
