New Watercolor Portrait
I never got to really know my father-in-law, since he was already over 90 years old and in a nursing home when my husband and I got married. But my husband told me so many beautiful stories of his memories of his father that I started to feel like I knew him. He had been a cabinet member of Chiang Kai Shek back in China, but came to America when the wars started. Once here, he became a divinity student and minister, finally also being a professor at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. He was beloved by students, faculty, and everyone else who met him. In this portrait, I tried to capture the kind gentleness of his personality.
