Gerald P. Openlander in 1984


Gerald P. Openlander
at age 83.

    He was my father-in-law and was known to his friends as "Jerry." He had a successful career as a Trial lawyer, both as United States Attorney for Ohio and in private practice.

    His career spanned over fifty years.  He died in 1995 at the age of 94. This was painted in 1984. In 2008 I found it damaged in storage so I repaired the damage and also reshaded the head to make it more three-dimensional.

This was my only large portrait. See detail of the head.
