36: GRANDPA'S POCKET

April 2002. This is Smell's father, Lloyd Francis Smeller, with #1 grandson, Carl Patrick Smeller. The photo was taken by George Smeller, processing date: Dec 64. Until now, all of the paintings have been on canvas; this is the first one using hardboard (Masonite) pre-coated with Gesso. Smooth is good when painting the fine detail in the plaid shirt. Size 12"x9"
