A Good and Kind Man

Artist's Statement:

The model for this portrait is the father of a woman who attended the Atelier School of Art when I did. The woman is a nun, who evidently embraces and is embraced by her faith.

Her father is just as the title of the painting suggests – a genuinely good and kind man.

In a world where everyone wears a mask,

it’s a privilege to see a soul.
