    "Portrait of my grandfather" 11x14 acrylic and chalk on heavy illustration board.

    This piece is a portrait of my grandfather Jan Deamond, who came to the United States from Poland in 1918. The scene is Gdansk in the late afternoon. 

    Painted using the fauvist technique which I have come to enjoy.
