My Old Man

My Old Man

(He’s a Lot Like Me)

Oil on canvas, 12 x 16 ”
May 2006

After a photo. And after many, many years of not wishing to be anything like him, then gradually realising just how alike we are (and in how many ways we are not), and eventually accepting it all.

It’s my life through a father-and-son relationship. Pretty normal methinks.
