Portrait of my father

 I did this portrait of my father when I was in art school, circa 1976-77. The only way he would consent to sit was if he could continue to work at his desk. So it's a much more characteristic picture of him than if he'd been posing for a portrait. It hung over his mantlepiece for many years.

Oil painting of a man working at desk with book and many papers scattered in foreground. He wears a brown jacket, glasses, and is writing with a yellow pencil.
