Ome Tini

Tien Burgers
7.75" x 6.75"
oil on wood, 2010

A little break from music now as I painted a portrait of man who has nothing to do with the Top 100 of 2010 but if I were to make a top 100 of my all time favorite people this person would sure score high. Tien Burgers is his name, or ome Tini, as I would call him. Last month my uncle Tini passed away after a short but intense battle with cancer. He was my favorite uncle, my godfather, and next door neighbor for a good part of my life. I will always remember him dearly. Rest peaceful dear uncle. My condolences to his family to whom I will send this painting. I wish them all the strength to carry on.
