Odyssey, 2016, Acrylic on Canvas, 24 x 36
My father passed away too early in life at the age of 65. He battled with a brain tumor since he was 36 but in the end, it was a malformed heart valve that took him. He was the most courageous and unlimited person I have known. He pursued his interests without fear of judgment or an ounce of embarrassment.
After his death I decided to paint an epic portrait of the boat he built by hand combined with his other hobbies which were: fly fishing, fly tying, gardening, and astronomy.
