Loving Parents

23"x19"  Soft Pastel on Wallis paper

This work was commissioned by a local area bank to give to one of it's employees getting ready to retire after years of devoted service.  I was given seperate images and asked to combine them to make one painting.  Changes I also made were of the direction the two were looking. 

The longer I studied these two, the more I felt I personally new them.  Reserved with a sense of humor to soften the rough spots in life.  Just enough mischief to make life interesting...never dull - coupled with a strong work ethic.  Hmmm...I'm describing most Iowans I know!
