This is a painting of my four year old grandson Jesse. It was painted from the same modeling session as the Penrod photos of his big brother, Gabriel. Jesse is wearing the same hat and a vintage sailor suit. Although this piece is quite small, only 6 x 8, I feel it has a strong and interesting composition.The hat and striped collar create a nice play of shapes and brushstrokes. I am often asked how I get my little guys to model for me! One word......MONEY! And Jesse is quite the negotiator!
