It was such a joy to do this beaming little guy! This is another portrait for the Painting for a Good Cause group - kids seeking foster homes or kids of active service members. Since I've been focusing on drawing lately, the last time I painted was for a portrait demo for the Aurora Art League in September - So this one felt pretty clumsy - particularly because it is a big toothy smile portrait. I used a lot of broken color, not bothering to do much blending. I'm happy with it - I hope he is as well! It's oil on Raphael linen board, 11" x 14".
