Country and Western Singer / Songwriter Wayne Longton - Oil on 11 x 14 Canvas Panel

Not for Sale

Wayne Longton – Country and Western Singer / Songwriter – Wayne passed away in late April of 2012 and his widow, Wendy asked me if I would paint her a portrait of him with his usual smile, this is what I came up with. Wayne was a personal friend for decades, from the time we both were about seven years old and attended the same rural grade school in northern Minnesota. I and my wife Lois visited Wayne and Wendy at their home in Iowa in August of 2011 and had a wonderful time reminiscing. I’ll miss him… Your comments are welcome.
