To my knowledge, this is the only painting that my father ever painted. It is loosely based on a photograph from a magazine. The painting hangs in my living room.

My father passed away 12 years ago today. He loved to grow a beard during vacations and documented them with straight-on and profile photos before shaving for work. If I can locate any of those photos, I'll share them before February 28. Meanwhile, this one's for him.

Miss you, Dad.
