My client, Mr. Bruce Goorland, commissioned “Two Young Men” Family Portrait Painting of his two sons. The older son in the white shirt was 21, and the younger son was 16. This piece reflects strong, healthy young men in their young prime.
Since both brothers like to work out and play sports, I suggested an outdoor environment for the background of the painting. The massive tree trunk adds texture and is an impressive detail which gives the viewer a sense of strength and vitality of this “Two Young Men” Family Portrait Painting. Both seated on a bench struck a pose and their father loved this pose for this 30″X37″ pastel painting.
Mr. Goorland, displayed this portrait in his office of the law firm of Ruben, McClosky, Smith, Schuster and Russell P.A. where my client was a senior partner.
