Acrylic Paint on Cotton block canvas

Description

This special man has left us since this photo was taken. It was his last big adventure with his son. I have always loved the photo, taken by my brother in law, that I used as a reference for this painting. They are in an Alaskan tavern which looks more like a casino with all the lights, but I think it is the perfect background. Its almost like a halo surrounding this lovely person. The image also captures his personality so well, soft, gentle and intelligent. He seems to be reflecting on life and just enjoying the moment.

For this painting I have used acrylic paints on canvas. The background I decided to make quite abstract in its textures and shapes. It is also very simplified to bring the focus on John who is painted in a more detailed, realist style.

This painting could be for anyone who has had someone make an impact on their lives in a positive way.
