I never said I was a portrait artist. (I’m not even pretending to be.) This is actually pretty awful, but in the spirit of fun and family, I decided to post it.
My niece, Chelsi, is an amazing photographer. She posted some wonderful photographs of her little family’s trip to a Washington pumpkin farm, on her Facebook wall. I got her permission to paint anything I wanted from those photos. I hope she’ll forgive me for what I did to her husband and son.
I promise, Chelsi….. better paintings to come. he he he
About Kurt Vonnegut
Kurt Vonnegut, the acerbic American author, rose to fame with the novel Slaughterhouse-Five, loosely based on his experiences as a prisoner of war during the World War II bombing of Dresden. He was born in 1922 in Indianapolis. His fiction, a blend of science fiction and satire, became hugely successful in the 1960′s. Three of his seven children are his sister’s, adopted after her husband died in a train wreck and she died of cancer a day later. He lived in New York until his death in 2007.
