    Description

    I lived with my grandpa, Charlie for 2 years.  He encouraged me to paint more than anyone.  I enjoyed his company so much, that I painted several portraits of him.  I painted almost every day.  He practiced playing his trumpet every day.

    Back in the day he played his trumpet in the marching band in WW2.  He fought with his music.  After the war he owned a shoe repair business in Visalia, Ca called Charlie's Shoe Shop.  He repaired the soles of shows.  Alongside his business he had a band for over 50 years called Charlie and Friends.  He played his heart out; music was his joy.  In his later years up until 96, I had the privilege of going with him as he played at retirement homes "for the old folk" he said.  His theme song which he always closed with was "Love".

    I title this painting Practice Room because every day he would go into his room and practice.
