Day One, Pappy Chet


This is the canvas after one day. I decided on doing a painting of my step-grandfather who I call "Pappy Chet". I took this picture of him a few years ago. He's in his rocking chair holding his 3 year old dog. It's kinda funny seeing an old man holding something so young. Maybe that's why I like it.  I also really enjoy talking to Chet too. He's full of stories, sometimes he tells the same ones twice, but I don't mind. Lately I'm told he's having trouble putting names together with faces. Every time I see him I can hear my grandmother start to tell him who I am, when he interrupts her, gives me a hug and says "There's my sweetheart."
