MENTOR'S FINE ARTS

PAINTINGS

PORTRAITS

Mentor painted portraits of himself or his family in his personal studio or outdoors in his own garden. He preferred natural light and the way it played across their faces. However, for commissioned Portraits he usually posed the client in their own home environment in order to allow them to have a more relaxed attitude.

When Mentor was still a Kid but not living at home,
he lucked into living down the street from a marvelous older couple.
Elsie and Mick Smythe

The older couple recognized the struggling Mentor's genius.
They complimented him on his art work.
Telling him all the wonders that would come at some future date.
Besides offering Mentor encouragement ~
during particularly troubled periods in his early life
they also gave him food and loans.
They treated him as if he were a relative.
Maybe better.

Mentor had nothing.
He was poor.
So to repay them he gave his energy and talent.
At about the age of 22, he painted their portraits.

The two portraits are now the prized possessions of their grandson.
Edward Maxwell was kind enough to share the images with us.

Though only 22 at the time,
Mentor, you will have to admit, accomplished pretty skillful portraits of his benefactors.

Although Mentor's experience with them pre-dated me,
I was privileged to have met them both.
As a young bride I happily came to know them
and to see them just as Mentor did,
they became Family.

Now of course everyone is deceased.
But Elsie and Mick live on in my heart
and in Mentor's Portraits of them ~ Forever.
