from the vault… alek’s city


This one is from July 4th, 2013.  I painted this for a dear friend who at the time was 20 years old and so much wanted to be in a big city beginning his life as an adult.  As it turns out, he made a different choice and took his own life last week.  Last night I celebrated his life with family and friends.  I had forgotten about this image, an image that will remain with his family to remind them of his sense of adventure and desire to surround himself with good people.  I was honored to be Alek’s friend for the last 6 years and wish him and his family everlasting peace.  (sorry the image is a bit rough)
