Painting - Praise to his Memory

A painting that I finished last week. Religious leader Joseph Smith. Turn into the LDS Church's International Art Contest. It's 16 x 21 in oil. I worked from photos of a statue, death mask, his sons, old photos (that some think might have been him) and other males. Trying to get his likeness was more work than I thought is was going to be. I'm glad I tried it I developed some insight along the way.

you are talented! I love it! At our Branch building there's this painting in the young women's room and I had to look and see who did it because I thought for sure it was yours.
