"Normally I have a lot to say about any particular painting, in this case however, I think the comments recieved really say it all. It was a gratification on my part beyond my words." Mario
Mario all I can say is WOW. You have done such an amazing job of capturing the moment. It was like you were the one who took the picture and there with us on that cool September morning in the mountains of Colorado. I can’t believe how you have captured my fathers face, my face and the elk. I have it setting in my office on the couch in front of me and can not stop looking at it. It brings such positive emotions to me and even a tear to my eye. Down to the detail of how the hat sits on my head and the youth in my face of 8 years ago. I never told you this but I had a brother who passed away when he was 3 years old. He would have been my older brother- I never had a chance to meet him. My parents had a portrait of him made and I see it every time I am at their house. I SWEAR I can see his face in mine as I stare at this painting.
