Father’s Day Portrait

Retrato de mi Padre

During one of his visits to the States I was able to celebrate father's day with my dad. To commemorate the occasion, we decided to sit him for a portrait.

Besides capturing the character of his face, it was my dad’s hands that interested me most in this portrait. Seeing in them the hands of an artist———pronounced, powerful, intricate———I decided to put them front and center as an essential feature of the piece.
