About:
Five generations of gentlemen from a British family, commissioned by noted author Adrian Mourby (4th from left). I wasn't sure how to approach the job before I noticed a round mahogany table in the trash on a London street. Suddenly the solution was at hand. I ripped it apart and took half the table top up to my studio, cleaned it, sanded it, and went to work: an acrylic underpainting, an overlay of oil glazes. It was a gift for Adrian's pop, the big guy in the centre. Son John, on the right, was my drawing student 2010-2013, and (as you might guess) an unusually interesting character.

Gorgeous! And I love that you used a table as a canvas. Nice scavenging and you made it beautiful again!
