                                                                           "The Veteran"         
                                                      
 
                                 
                                   I met "Moses",  his given name, while driving though Petersburg, Tn. one day.
                                    I knew from the moment I saw him that he would be the first person that I would
                                    ever paint.  He was around a hundred years old at the time I started the painting.
                                    It took me a year to complete the painting, starting in April of 1987 through April
                                    of 1988.  While working on the painting, I found that he had been admitted to
                                    the Alvin C. York Veterans Home in Murfreesboro, Tn.  He lived there until he
                                    passed away in 1993, around the age of 105.  A very humble man.....he still today
                                    remains one of my favorite paintings.  I was honored to have the opportunity to
                                    paint him at his home in Petersburg.  He was a World War One veteran.
