Wrinkles with Age


Project medium
Oil on canvas: SOLD

20" x 20"

I enjoyed the chance to paint this portrait of my nephew as a surprise for his parents, Ann and Doug. After a visit, my wife brought home this photo, which I crumpled up and copied in paint with all the wrinkles and creases. I wanted to demonstrate a sensitivity to how quickly this image won’t look like the boy, and how it will get old in a way, too.
