One of the two oil paintings I inherited from my parents. Approximately 20" x 30" unframed, 2' x 3' framed. This is typical of his early work. His newer paintings are more family-friendly, but I prefer the majesty in these portraits--although neither type of painting is my style.....

This is the other one. Photos don't really show the texture of the paint or the clarity of the details.

Just so you can see one of them--a link to the second is under the puzzle. :-)))

Thanks again, Bonnie.

Yes the picture you own are much better than his newer ones, much more character.

Thanks, Francine. :-)))

Your two paintings are special, though I prefer this one. I didn't particularly care for the newer one you mentioned below.

I just added a link to the second painting--it's not as clear in our photo, so I didn't publish it as a public puzzle.

Thank you! That's just what I thought of the new ones--the themes are usually sweetly uplifting, or, I must admit, what I call saccharine......but people pay 5 figures for the new ones......and the folks on Jigidi always write very appreciative comments.
As I wrote under the puzzle, even my two are not what I would choose to hang in my home, but I do admire them.

It's quite, quite different, very 'cute'. I much prefer yours :)

Thanks, Bonnie. I'll post the other one as well--I think he had a real talent for depicting the majesty and experience and inner lives of these men. But his newer works are much more popular--probably because they are much more accessible. I keep seeing them posted on Jigidi, and, to me, they look like the work of a younger, less mature artist, even though the truth is just the opposite. Here's the latest I found posted:

You can see right into his soul through those eyes. Would be lovely to spend some time with him so he could share his wisdom. Lovely painting :))
