Proud to present the framed, finished pastel portrait of Lcpl Nicholas Said in "No Greater Friend - No Worse Enemy"!
This piece is getting its debue this weekend when I will be presenting my work for a grant here in Syracuse. I will write more later.

Just a quick update on "Grief", now entering its final phase. Every painting is charged with its emotion. That has been my intent on every painting to visually tell their story. As an artist in developing portraiture, I get involved with my subjects as if I am in the painting with them. I know their loss, it is such a deep sense of grieving. Though I have been painting this for a while, I found myself today feeling their pain and stopping to cry.
