This picture of Jack Finwall's Dad, Glenn Sr., was taken in 1992 ... Glenn won 1st Place - SWEEPSTAKES and Best of Show at the Lake County Indiana Fair for this painting he did ...... Glenn used to play the Banjo in speak-easys in Chicago during prohibition ..... he always had the latest in "HI-FI" gear .... it was always FUN to go over to Jack & his brother Glenn's to play ... one of many reasons was there was a bullet trap in the basement so we would shoot his 22 and pellet gun .... AND they had a Motor-Scotter ... the drawing below is MY, "Finwall" ....Glenn took his first art class when he was 74, and by the time he was 82 his eyesight had failed him so he can no longer paint or draw ...
