Portrait of Charlie

16x20 acrylic on canvas

This portrait was commissioned by Archdale's author and writer Mrs. Gail Gurley. You might remember her name from "Red Dirt Rising", a movie which is based on her book, "Red Dirt Tracks". Here's a brief description of Charlie from Gail, his grandmother:

Pvt. Ronald Charles "Charlie" Peters, Jr., of the U. S. Marine Corps graduated from Taylor High School in Katy, Texas, class of 2010. He joined the U. S. Marine and completed his boot camp in April 2011 at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego, Ca. He is in the school of infantry attached with Company G, 3rd Platoon, Camp Pendleton, Ca. He will attend Communications School at Twenty-nine Palms, Ca., and will then be assigned to a permanent base. He is the son of Denise Gurley of Katy, Texas and has a brother and sister. His brother Spencer is 17 years old and sister Madison is 13. He is the grandson of Ed and Gail Gurley of Archdale, N. C.

Thanks Gail, I hope you and your family enjoy the portrait.
