Irving Kerr

Irving Kerr was a watercolor Artist from my workshop who passed away recently at the age of 101.  I was invited by his son to join his family and other Artists from the workshop for a Memorial luncheon.  There was a table set up displaying his beautiful work.  The reference photo for this pastel portrait was on the table.  Unfortunately, I never met Irving since I started the workshop after he stopped going but I feel like I knew him especially after seeing his work and listening to all the stories from the Artists in the group.  I will be showing this painting in the Rockville Centre Library in the Fall and will present this painting to his son after the show.
