I couldn’t show it until my sister Jan saw it, but it arrived to her in Texas today so now I can post it for everyone to see. I’m usually pretty critical and picky about anything I do, but I like it and my sister likes it and thats what really matters.
I painted this picture for her as a gift. I wanted to do something special for her after going through the pain of losing her husband and the father of her two young boys. This was my creative gesture.
This is the original picture I used to model my painting after, taken by Brett’s sister, Jill (who is a wonderful photographer)
Ok so mine doesn’t look exactly like the picture… but it does look like Brett. My true test of this was when I asked my 4 year old niece who it looked like and she said “UNCLE BRETT.” And as if that weren’t enough, my nephew Carter, who is not even 2 looked at it and said “Daddy.”
