The Oklahoma State Legislature declared today (March 22) "General Thomas Stafford Day" and dedicated a new original oil-on-canvas portrait of the Gemini and Apollo astronaut painted by renowned local artist Mike Wimmer. Said Stafford:
I am very humbled by this honor. It doesn't get any better than when the people of your home state acknowledge your life's work. I'm a very proud Oklahoman and, will be forever, a Weatherford Eagle.

The general bears a strong resemblance there to Garrick Utley.

I wasn't sure if this had been posted.

Very nice painting.
