Mayor Judy Johnson approached me at The Portrait Society of Atlanta Winter 2015 Exhibition opening in Lawrenceville, Georgia and asked me to paint her father. What I later learned was that not only is she the Mayor of Lawrenceville, but so was her father – for 8 terms spanning the 1960’s-1980’s! I am delighted to work with Mayor Johnson and her family on this portrait that will hang in a school being dedicated to him later this fall.  This drawing will be my guide as I begin the oil painting!
