A Portrait of an Artist
From the Vintage 2011 Collection.
About this creation
I made this mosaic as a Father's Day gift for my grandfather who adopted me as an infant and raised me as his own. In his first 80 years, he has seen the Great Depression, fought in Korea, served as a deputy sheriff, became a licensed pilot, and made a good living as a western artist - selling his works to leaders of industry, celebrities and politicians.

The man still amazes me.

This artwork is pretty amasing, how many studs are there on it altogether?

Just outstanding and a great tribute to a man who sounds as if he fully deserves not only a tribute, but our admiration.

Not to change the subject away from Lego, but what you wrote sounds like a good idea for a book followed by a movie. Just saying...
