"Although I'm not a portrait painter (except for animals!), I do enjoy capturing what I call 'characters'. I saw this reinactor at Fort Loudoun in Tennessee on September 9, 2001. He was deep in thought, and I loved the way the old gray wood siding and the rusty hinges framed him in the open window, and it was great fun to depict them in paint. This is another work I completed shortly after 9/11 (as was "Land That I Love"), so soldiers and prayers were on my mind."
