Chuck, Frank and Joe
Chuck, Frank and Joe | 5"x7" | oil on hardboard
Here's a painting based on a photo from our trip to Minneapolis last month. While there, I dragged my family to the art museum. The Minneapolis Institute of Art. The painting on the wall in this painting is titled "Frank" and is by my favorite Photo-Realist painter, Chuck Close. It's my oldest son, Joe who is inspecting the painting. Thus the title.
It is my favorite painting in the museum's collection and I always look forward to seeing it when we go there. If you go, make sure you check it out.
I also need to give credit where credit is due. One of my favorite artist bloggers is Karin Jurick and she has painted many, many great museum paintings similar in a style to the one I created here. Thanks, Karin.
