W. Garfield Weston




This kindly-looking fellow is W. Garfield Weston, Canadian businessman and philanthropist, and founder of the (aptly named) W. Garfield Weston Foundation. Through a scholarship, the foundation did a lot to help pay my way through college, so this painting is a thank-you to the Weston Family for their generous support. Hooray burnt umber! In related news, my scanner seems to be on its last legs.

More information on Weston and the foundation can be found here.
