About the work

I painted my dad. He has been feeling sad because we lost my brother in a tragic accident. He blames himself. I try to make him laugh, so I asked him to make a funny face. He did, and I painted him. I think he looks funny, but it made him laugh. It’s important to smile. I love his smile.
