Lately my dad and I have been spending a lot more time together. I’ve been inviting him on drives, museum visits, and also upstairs to hang out with me in my studio. We’ve been remodeling downstairs and he needs to escape the clamor and dust from the construction. While I set him up to watch a tv series on my kindle,  I couldn’t resist painting this quick portrait. Harold has always been one to express a full range of emotions on his face, especially watching movies. He must’ve been watching a happy scene here. Even though he doesn’t paint any longer, I still benefit from his insightful eye and feedback on my paintings. Thanks dad!
