This painting may look a little familiar! I painted Ryan's dad, Joe, 2 days ago. The photograph was taken my Ryan's mom, Sherry! Sherry is a professional photographer, and I asked her permission to use her art in my art! She was kind enough to allow me to paint the two most important men in her life. For me it is more difficult to paint from a photograph, and to paint someone I know personally. So Ryan was a challenge, as was Joe.
