Ready to Hang
The majority of my paintings deal with various states of mind. The mood I try to capture determines the name of a series, and in this case, Transambiance strives to convey a transcendental sort of ambiance, where the subject's bountiful thoughts harmonize in a confident manner.
This particular painting is a portrait of a dear friend; a selfless man who never fails to offer his wisdom, attention and patience to friends in need. I gave it the sub-title of "The Descendant," to imply an honorable and dignified timelessness to his character.
