A dear friend of mine lost her younger brother, Josh, to an automobile accident in 2011…which moved me to produce this portrait for her and her family, who all mean a great deal to me. The portrait got put on hold for a while…but I completed it this last fall, in time to present it to them as they laid his ashes to rest on the family farm.
I barely met Josh before his passing…but working on his portrait, I feel I got to know him a bit more.
Make sure to give your loved ones a hug tonight…and remind them of how much they mean to you. We never know how much time we have…
For anyone interested in viewing a slideshow of the process taken to produce this portrait and an outline of the work involved, please continue to the next post!
