Strength, 4x4 Inches, Oil Painting

$65 & $10 S&H

For the Girls Just Wanna Paint Challenge for October, our charge was to paint "Hat"!  Hard, for me, as I don't usually wear, or like, hats.  Then I remembered my favorite photos of my Dad growing up were of him in his uniform.  I always thought he was so handsome, particularly in his policeman uniform.  Well, I couldn't find the photo of him, but this is very similar.  As a cop's daughter we knew every evening when we kissed him goodbye (night shift) there was every chance he'd be in harm's way that night.  He was strong and brave and a good role model for our whole family, and we were very proud of him, and that uniform.

  2. I do have a heart for police officers and most men in uniform are indeed handsome. This is wonderful, Kelley. I love the black and white.
