"Grizzled Old Man with Pipe in Wooden Detailed Frame"

1973, 24" x 28"

Another winner from Andy and Amy Lester, this painting was the largest of their three 2001 donations. Not to take anything away from the piercing blue eyes or the awkwardly placed hand, but my favorite thing about this painting is the exquisitely carved wooden frame. I still can't get the darn thing to fit the painting properly, but a few well-placed finishing nails should do wonders for this painting's structural integrity.
