The title "Happy Pappy" of this expressive painting, helps focus on the ageless emotion of happiness. It is my intent to give hope to all that there is no age limit on happiness. There is no class, race, faith or position in life that defines happiness. To be happy in life is a state of outlook rather than money or success. To look upon the work is to join in the universal feeling of happiness. While painting, I couldn't help but smile. As a finished work, it still makes me smile whenever I study it. As the artist, the emotion transcend the brushwork, composition, colors or the lights and darks the define the subject. A work that was pure joy to paint.
The edges are painted and may be hung unframed or framed.
