Portrait of Tom Rowe

In Autumn of 2012 I was commissioned to do a painting for Tom Rowe's 60th birthday.  It was, in a word, ambitious.  I was asked to capture the many facets of Tom - family man, Christian, structural engineer - on one canvas.  Here is the progress of that painting which was presented to Tom during his 60th celebration on December 29, 2013.  Happy Birthday, Tom!!
