Those of us that work at the courthouse know this man as Ben. I never knew his last name but I saw him almost daily as I went about my business in the Criminal Justice Center (CJC). He posed for me years ago and I painted this from one of the three to four photos I took of him. He died a few years ago. I made this painting back in 2005. In April I was in a car accident and this painting was in my car. The frame was busted up in the wreck. It gave me the opportunity to photograph the painting again.
