Father in 6th Grade


Special Artistic Merit

This is a portrait of my father when he was in the 6th grade I believe. It currently hangs in his room at the nursing home. I created it in high school just using an ink pad and my finger prints only. Inspired by well know artist Chuck Close who would create portraits with ink and finger prints while he was confined to hospital beds.
