About my grandfather, John B. Farrington 1925-2008

"My Grandfather has always had a huge impact on my life. From the time I was a little kid, when I would long to be old enough to go to Maine with him. And today when I drag him to come with me places and do things that he "doesn't have the ambition for" which translates to 'I'll go, if you drive.'

So it should be of no surprise that I use him as subject matter in my painting's. I use him because he has a certain gritty appeal that all great characters have.

It's the weathered skin, the crisscrossed patterns on his neck and the old beat up hands that have history and that is what he gives to a painting, history.
