Ginger's Son, TJ
I painted Ginger's son from two photos she emailed to me. One was a blurry shot of TJ in his football uniform and another was a picture of him with his girlfriend. Neither one showed TJ in his helmet and Ginger wanted a painting of him in uniform to give him for his graduation. They won their region and came within one game of winning state, so the young man was understandably proud of his achievements. Still have to add some stripes to the helmet but I am just about done. 16 x 20 oil on canvas
