Pool Boy's Daughters
Señor Alberto leads a gang of guys who
do the twice-weekly maintenance on our small swimming pool. He and I will often spend time commiserating when he is
here. He really delights in watching me paint and, one day several years ago, asked me if I could paint portraits of
his two daughters. I told him to bring me good photos of the girls, and we could see what we could do. Here is
the final product and, I am happy to report that the father and the daughters were delighted with the result.
Portrait of Goddaughter
is my late Uncle Bob as he appeared in 1944 in his Navy lieutenant's uniform. His widow, my Aunt Jean, asked me to do
this portrait, using a black-and-white photograph for reference, and the same now hangs in her apartment at Westminster
Canterbury in Virginia Beach."
