"Uncle Clyde" 12x12 o/c, n/a

I painted this as a gift for Uncle Clyde on his 80th birthday.  I took a photo of him resting his eyes at his cabin in St Elmo, CO, after a long day of entertaining the Coopers!  I have been studying with Melinda Morrisson and this is my first finished portrait under her instruction.  It's still a little tighter than I would like but I'm happy with it.
