As promised, here is a new painting fresh off the easel (technically an easel was not used in the creation of this painting). I painted this from a photo of our son, Mason, leaping from a footstool to a sofa, the type of activity at which he's likely to excel. Most of my energy in painting this piece was spent in the area of the head, leaving the rest of the body as well as the background in a loose, simplified state. Click the image for a larger view and please leave a comment. Thanks!
