This is one of two paintings going down to the Sears Dixie Invitational in St. George, UT. I used my Dad as a model and "inspiration" for this painting. I don't think I've ever really used that phrase before, but in this case, it really is more or less a portrait of him as I think he would have been 100 years ago. Not only by the fact that he has always been our literal caretaker, but I think if he lived somewhere around 1900, this is something he would be doing - taking his lamp out to start working before the sun came up and then taking a break from his simple breakfast to study his scriptures in a quiet place. Thanks for all you do, Dad! Love you!
