Big John was painted as a tribute to my dear friend John McFarland. He is a man of great kindness, stature, with a heart for God. I chose this particular pose to emphasize the strength of the figure. The hat with head band, adds character and accents the portrait. The red shirt adds warmth to the figure and overall design complimenting the dark cool colors of the background.
"Great is the man who gives the shirt off his back to help others in need. Blessed is the man, willing to give regardless of the need."
