Julie, I LOVE this portrait! Loved it before I read your description but after reading it WOW what an awesome story. Made me laugh & smile. I wish I knew Tom McCorkle, I'm sure he was a great man! V

Julie Dant replied:

Thank you Robert, for your enthusiastic comments! I am happy that everyone seems to have been so interested in my accompanying story, also! ;0) I am sure he was also, Robert. I've recently put his photo up on my FB page and in the surrounding communities' FB the hopes someone will recognize him! ;0) thanks again!

This is a wonderful piece of art :-)

Julie Dant replied:

Thank you, Sylvia! So happy you like it and very glad to hear from you! ;0)

Just fantastic Julie!!! There is so much character and life story imprinted on the face of the elderly. I have always liked this quote: "At 50 everyone deserves the face that he has." Author unknown. NO I DON'T THINK 50 is elderly but you know what I mean. Anyway I found this on FB, liked and clicked thru. fave,v/twt,P

Julie Dant replied:

Hi Maggie! Thanks so much for the interesting comments! I am happy you enjoyed Tom. ;0) Thanks for all the "extras" at the end there also! ;0))

I loved your description of this wonderful photographic portrait. That adds to the portrait, knowing details about a moment in time. I've known some little old men like this in a past job (bank teller) as well, and it really gives you a "warm and fuzzy' feeling to connect with someone like this. Nice job on the photo and the write up about it.

Julie Dant replied:

Hello Julie! Thank you for the wonderful comments. It's nice to hear of other people who work with the public and their impressions, too. Thanks for taking the time to read my long story! ;0))

Great detailed and moody portrait...Love it :) V/F

Julie Dant replied:

I thank you very much, MoT! ;0)

Thanks, Julie for posting the story to go with the portrait. I can see that you are also gifted as a wordsmith and you relate the meeting with Tom McCorkel beautifully. With your combination of photographic and writing skills, I can see that the book you spoke of to old Tom would be a good one.

Julie Dant replied:

How sweet of you, Robert! But I'm not surprised. You've always given me wonderful and kind critiques. Thanks so much for being a nice friend on here! And yeah...I am a writer/poet, too. lol If you ever want to read one or two..I'm simply "Julie" at . ;0)

Julie that is just plain fantastic.. What a great capture and render.

Those wrinkles tell a lot! Great pic!

Julie Dant replied:

Thanks Asuncion! I agree! You can tell he's worked outside all of his life and he has a good sense of humor with those laugh-lines! ;0)

That face has a story all it's own. And the story you shared just adds to it. Great work! -v-

Julie Dant replied:

Thanks, Christian, for your comments and for letting me know you like Tom's portrait. I appreciate that very much! ;0)

I love Tom McCorkel so muc I have just been Googling to see if I can find anything at all, but alas I couldn't (tried mccorkle spelling too). He has a wonderful face, such character. I hope his lady killer worked for him. Thank you for sharing this story Julie, it has cheered me up so much. Great, great great... ahhhhh.... where is Tom, I want to know too ;) x v/f/g+

Julie Dant replied:

Aww, Faye! What a compliment your comment is for me! ;0) Thank you for expressing such an interest in Tom's portrait. IF I ever find out anything more about him..I'll let you bout that? ;0)) YOUR interest prompted ME to try my OWN search..but to no avail. Even tried telephone number look up. Nada. ;0( I keep thinking maybe some one who knew or knows him, will see the photo. I just now thought...I'll try on my Facebook page! Maybe a friend of a friend of a friend might recognize him! ;0)) THanks again, Faye!

Wonderful portrait - great detail! v/f

Artist's Description

My very first serious portrait. I was working a checkout at the place I worked one summer and this man came through my line. He had on a black felt hat with silver medallions circling it..and a crisp light blue dress shirt with blue jeans. He was by himself. He had a twinkle in his eye when he sort of plopped down a bottle of Brut Aftershave onto the counter..and as he was doing so..he looked me in the eye and announced, "I come ta git me some Lady Killer!!" Knowing he was expecting some response...I immediately held up my hand in a "STOP" motion..and said..."Well..what EVER you wait to put that on when you get outside the building, 'cause I have this line of customers after you and I can't be swooning over you right at the moment!!" And he just LOVED that retort..and began laughing a hoarse, raspy guffaw, bent over and slapped his knees and then straightened back up with even MORE of a twinkle in his eye and promised me he'd wait...JUST for me!! ;0)) All the customers behind...

In the process of searching out the old houses on...
