John F Kennedy Painting


This John F Kennedy painting was a commissioned piece. The client had seen my Jaqueline Bouvier Kennedy painting and wanted one of JFK with a muted red, white and blue flag in the background. This was given as a gift. One can hardly think of many other gifts, that are as thoughtful as a custom painting! I was so happy to be a part of this.

Though this was painted months ago, it was just gifted to the special person yesterday. So NOW I’m able to publish this.

    I always love to see how art work comes alive. You have made a strong illustration of one of the most prominent presidents in the precious century.

      It’s always nice to hear that a fellow artist enjoys a behind the scenes look. It was inspiring to work on JFK, we could use a level head here in the U.S. right about now.

    Excellent work! I like really how you have arranged art on your website. What theme is this? However, I wanted the infinite scroll, so it probably won’t work with my intentions. Anyway, your site works well and looks great.

      Using the Virtue theme with woocommerce, that’s why the products are organized the way they are. You can opt to have Infinite scroll with this them as well. Its well maintained and works seamlessly with woocommerce. Wordfence is also running for the protection of my clients. Inese, I hope you feel better soon, like I mentioned, will be sending you healing, positive thoughts on the 22nd! Hang in there – keep positive (as hard as that is sometimes – its crucial)
