True Authentic Swing

12 x 16, oil on canvas
I love fashions from the 1920s. You just know this guy's game will be exceptional the minute he steps out onto the green in this ensemble.
This painting will be part of an auction for the upcoming Kela Fee Memorial Golf Classic. Benefiting cancer research, it is named for a friend who never lost her "authentic swing" and whose life serves as an inspiration to all who knew and loved her.
"Inside each and every one of us is our one, true authentic swing. Something we was born with. Something that's ours and ours alone. Something that can't be learned... something that's got to be remembered"...Bagger Vance

I have always loved that era too. You captured it. You also capture hearts - what a great event for Kela. Your loving karma will be returned.
