I would like to thank Adebanjifor his generous permission to reference an amazing photo that he took of his friend and mentor, English artist extraordinaire Peter Brown. You can see the photo on Adebanji's blog. I was not familiar with Mr. Brown's work until reading about him in Adebanji's blog, and now I find myself studying and admiring his amazing paintings. The beautiful clean strokes are nothing short of genius in their precision, economy and brilliant colour. What can I say...huge new fan here. So here he is doing what he makes look so effortless. We can only wish.
My good friend Don's father passed on May 9th, and as a memory for his beloved wife, I wanted to paint his portrait. He was a very interesting, warm and caring man, so it was a pleasure for me to try and capture his spirit for this wonderful lady.
