Dr. William Riffee
Dr. William Riffee was familiar with my work and when
he began planning for his retirement he interviewed me.
At this meeting he expressed wanting to depict some of the
innovations he helped bring about in his seventeen year
The two major accomplishments are the building of the
new pharmacy complex and the modernization of their systems to
I created the building portrait, placed it into an imaginary frame and
hung it behind him..
I painted the building, photographed Dr. Riffee with his ipad and
Sam did his digital magic. I presented the image; had instant acceptance
of the idea! The subsequent oil painting hangs in the pharmacy school
boardroom at University of Florida.
