Grandparents


I painted a portrait of Robert's Grandparents for his mother's birthday one year. His grandpa had been dead for a little over a year and I really wanted to paint it for her. I have taken about 10 years of private lessons and for 3 of those years I studied watercolor. That is really the one I am better at. I have never actually taken an oil class, but I have kind of figured it out a little. This painting is an oil on canvas.

His Grandparents were married almost 60 years before his Grandpa died. He was almost 93 years old and died about a month after Emily was born. They were blessed with only one child, Robert's mom and they were always kind, loving and sweet to others.
