FRANK and MAYNARD

"Frank and Maynard" by Stephanie Berry
I continue to work on a series using old photos of our neighbor and friend.  We figured  his father Frank must have been 16 when this photo was taken.  I love the confident poses of both men who had obviously been playing a little football but their real game in life was farming.

This a wonderful painting, Stephanie! You painted the confident poses of both men and the shadows of the clothes beautifully. Also Love the color palette you used. I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
