As Dr. David Gaffron was preparing to retire as Pastor of Wesley United Methodist Church, I was commissioned to create his Official Church Pastoral Portrait.
Wesley United Methodist Church has a rich history in Bloomington Normal as one of the more established churches for many years. In the church is a gallery of many of its past Pastors. Many of the pictures are paintings that have been displayed there many, many years, and this is one of the first photographs for the gallery.
It was an honor to be chosen to create his portrait, and it was even greater to get to know Dr. Gaffron. Most of the preachers whom I have known usually have stories to tell. When I met Dr. Gaffron, I was intrigued as to what was on his mind. Then when he spoke, it was a pleasant surprise that was different from what I had anticipated, something quite humorous. I like someone who makes me think and keeps me guessing.
