Substantial Citizen

Original painting $40.00 opening bid. 

Back in 1960 my father found a packet of old black and white negatives in a dump ​in Long Island, New York. I recently began developing them and found an image of this gentleman. Based on other images in the package I determined the year - 1897 - and the location - Malone, New York. Unfortunately I have not been able to identify this man's name. 

I decided to honor him by designing this painting. Those mountains behind him, I believe, are the Adirondacks.
