Student Paints Tribute Portrait of Her Grandfather

Student Paints Tribute Portrait

Here is one of my favorite students at our school. Her name is Regina Thorson. She is painting a tribute portrait in memory of her grandfather John Alexander Thorson. She came to us because her grandfather saw her drawings and knew she had an artistic side in her. John asked her if she wanted to take lessons to pursue her inner artist and she said yes. From there on she has expanded her horizons from sketching to becoming an oil painter. Recently John has passed into the light. That has inspired Regina to paint this tribute portrait.
