When it is time to deliver a finished portrait, oftentimes there will be an unveiling celebration. Well, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy a very special unveiling party!
The party was for Mr. Bob Costas celebrating his incredible 26 years of dedication for the Bob Costas Benefit for SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center. As a gift and tribute, a portrait was presented to him.
The Costas Center was built and is supported through the Bob Costas Benefit, which has raised millions for cancer care at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center.
I've had the opportunity to paint sports celebrity figures in the past but this was an extreme honor to paint this special portrait for Mr. Bob Costas. Thank you Cardinal Glennon for giving me the opportunity.
A special thank you to Cardinal Glennon Medical Center, Mr. Bob Costas and Suzy Gorman for the use of the selected photos.
