Portrait of Virgil Mathis

Virgil Mathis viewed his oil portrait for the first time on Wednesday night at the Chicago Cultural Center. I attended a Vet Art Project program and was so glad that I took three of my completed paintings. Virgil was overjoyed with the painting. As you can see his kindess and strength are evident in his face and strong hands. This was one of the most rewarding experiences that I have encountered in my work as an artist.
By the way if you check out my Youtube channel you can see me in the process of painting Virgil's portait in my studio.
