Patrick Alan Dominguez
A really great friend of my dad's passed away last year, I made him this painting as a commemoration. Here's a bit about him (taken from his obituary in the Santa Cruz Sentinel):

Pat's style and interests were eclectic and diverse. He was a true Santa Cruz person. He loved a spontaneous party, playing his bass with fellow musicians, meditating, concerts, walking to the ocean, skiing and hiking in the mountains, reading, watching sporting events, listening to music, and tending his gardens. Always, Pat enjoyed sharing a good joke. He had a great sense of humor. Pat remained insightful in spite of his illness, encouraging his friends to embrace all aspects of life with a joyful state of mind.

Rest in Peace Pat...
