The Nordic Noble Grandfather with Grandson by L. Martel

This is a 20″x 24″ oil on canvas painting of a Nordic grandfather with his grandson, a third painting in the Generation Series and, at the moment, the last. Any resemblance of the grandfather to the Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw, is purely coincidental. As with the Indian grandson, I find the young boy apprehensive and hesitant. Both boys are younger than the granddaughter. To me, both boys are in need of the strenght of their grandfathers to find their way in this world. The granddaughter is actually happy and hopeful looking. She is just that much older but also has much more confidence.
