Artwork Description

The original pastel and mixed media painting won a significant cash merit award in the Realism 2002 exhibition held in the Cultural Center of Fine Arts at Parkersburg, WV USA and then a patron bought it at the show! I do have an open edition print available of this piece, however.

Luckily I did not throw this one out with the dishwater, which nearly happened. I experimented with new techniques in the background by mixing media, and it nearly destroyed the piece. I finally worked the technique out and produced a striking result that I employ now in more of my art. Persistence pays off!

i have found there is something memorable in almost every face i have seen in my lifetime, but there are few artists who are able to take full advantage of that fact in their work. thanks for putting up your gallery. a pleasure to peruse.

The child's expression is what grabs the viewer immediately. Excellent job!

Absolutely excellent! The background is intriguing. But it is the look on the child's face that immediately catches your attention. I'm not at all surprised that it was snatched up right away!

Art at its best.
