Portrait of Captain Shaw
18x14 Oil on canvas portrait commission of Air Force Captain Shaw F16 pilot.
Someone asked if I paint portraits / people and I do! Below is my first portrait commission I finished earlier this year. It was to be a simple replication of the photo as a surprise for Captain Bull Shaw, but to me a portrait is something personal and to remember a point in time. Soo - he just move to Aviano AFB, so I put the call tower in the background. He also just got his ‘patch’ so I painted that in, AND his jet with all the markings. He also just had a baby boy, so I painted a blue pen in his sleeve as a reminder of the time and a piece to remember.
Message me if you are interested in a commission!
