Gene and Georgie Wambold are one of the loveliest, funnest couples in Charleston.  But the story behind the portrait goes waaaaaay back.

Gwambold santaene asked my dad to paint his late first wife’s portrait back in the early 1970’s back when they all lived in Detroit.  He also did a portrait of his daughter, Kristen, around the same time.  Two timeless works by the master.

“Aubrey up a Tree” by Robert Maniscalco

Flash forward to five years ago when Kristen was looking for an artist to paint her son, Aubrey.  What a delightfully small world to find Joe’s son, also living in Charleston.  This lead full circle to the portrait of Gene and his new wife, Georgie, celebrating their love with a portrait.
