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.
