Little Lance

Here's my latest painting commission.  Lance's sweet little face was such a joy to paint.  His Dad wanted him standing on the tracks...kind of scary huh!  The composition was a little tricky.  I learn a bit each time I do a painting.  This time perspective was a challenge as well as form...then there's always the warm and cool shadows...so many things to think about when you paint a piece. I suppose this will end up being a New Year's present.  Dr. Harris picked it up today.  Can't wait to hear what his wife thought of it and to see it framed in that new home they're planning!
