oil painting portrait of Arnold Palmer
“The King” oil painting portrait of Arnold Palmer by Carrie Lacey Boerio

I love this painting, because it’s going to help children and youth who have experienced difficult times. I wanted to donate art for a silent auction to benefit a nonprofit that helps victims of child abuse and other youth called Adelphoi. Because they are headquartered in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, my husband suggested a portrait of the hometown hero who passed away this year, Arnold Palmer. There are some great photos of him as a younger man, but this is the Arnold I remember, silver-haired and smiling.
