Lauri Palmer

This painting is a personal family portrait of my wife Lauri. Although she has posed many times in the past, this is the first formal portrait I have done of her.

Frank Edwards, Chairman of the Board, NYLUBE

This is a portrait of Frank Edwards, whose great grandfather, Carl Gaither, founded NYLUBE in the 1930s, an international elevator parts manufacturing company. The business began in Detroit's Guardian Building, which is represented in the painting by a scale model. The Guardian, a striking example of Art Deco architecture, is registered as a U.S. Historic Landmark. Frank and his wife Ann are distinguished art collectors. Frank stands next to a Mission Style chair, and behind him is a painting by Brad Durham, a contemporary American landscape painter.

Available as a fine art print. Click here for details.
