New Portrait – Kevin Daniel Yates

Posted in Commission, Oil Painting, portrait, Portrait Art, portrait artist, portrait commissions with tags , , , on February 1, 2011 by mikeivey

Kevin Daniel “Sunshine” Yates was killed by an intoxicated driver August 1, 2011. I have the honor of serving with his mother and father as chaplains at the Harris County Jail. I gave the original 16″X20″ carbon pencil drawing to them as a gift.

Why? Because I have two sons.

This wedding oil painting was commissioned by Veroica Gonzales and her family to be given as a Christmas present to her grandparents. It was painted from a very old and very small black & white photo. That made it very difficult but very challenging. I was pleased with the outcome and they loved it.
