My Friend Bob
I had been thinking about Bob a lot lately. He passed away in 2002 and I still miss him. He was one of the first people who encouraged me to keep painting when I started in 2000. I painted this from a charcoal drawing I had completed from life of him shortly before he got really sick and a photo I took that day. He never met a stranger, and Bob Willingham was a spiritual leader in his church and an absolutely hilarious guy. He never complained and he never had a bad word to say about anyone.
