I was honored to be asked to paint a portrait of the late Bishop Leslie Hannah from a snap shot they took at their church. What I learned from the life of this man is something to be told.
At age 29 he became an ordained minister. By 2001 he opened the doors to the New Life Ministries church. His congregation loved him so much they dedicated their church with this portrait painting they commissioned me to create.
I was moved by their love and dedication to this man who made a house of worship for his community.
