Townsley Painted Portraits recently had the honor of creating a portrait for Hall of Fame Boxing Referee Richard Steele. Mr. Steele has been a leader and mentor in the Las Vegas community for more than three decades. Capturing his strength and generosity of spirit was important to Stuart Townsley, portrait artist.
Mr. Steele is a very well known figure in Southern Nevada, and throughout the world of professional boxing. He is respected for his professional accomplishments as well as his personal mission to give back. Conveying Mr. Steele's depth of character was Townsley's primary goal.
The resulting portrait is something that brings pride to both Townsley and Mr. Steele.
As Mr. Steele says of the finished work, "I've been honored by so many great artists, but everyone speaks of this portrait more than any other. My family and everyone who sees it loves it."
Townsley Painted Portraits certainly loved working with Mr. Steele. To learn more about him and his work, please visit The Richard Steele Foundation website.
