This painting was fun to do. The little boy has an expression of be interrupted at play and inquiring the nature of the disturbance. I love the setting among the fruiting grasses.
It is oil painted on canvas 4"W x 6"H.
I plan on doing a few more in this genre and look forward to your remarks.
In a world of difficulties our children offer a bright ray of hope for tomorrow. Teach them well.
Today I also want to share with everyone a new mural. It is done in what I call the Academic Method. It is a major commission by Graydon Parrish and regards the 9/11 tragedy. The article is by Lee Sandstead whom I admire for his striking photography.A Brief Introduction to Artist Graydon ParrishThe Cycle of Terror and Tragedy, September 11th, 2001

Another comment: Thanks for sharing the comments from ***** on your painting. I said to
myself, Gordon must have some big shoulders to withstand such honesty from him. Anyway, I don't think I could take it. I admit it, I am a sensitive wimp. I think you are incredibly talented. I am amazed at how much you have grown. I too, thought the painting of Noah captured him quite well. Keep up the great work! Name withheld for privacy.
My response: I value all the critical comments that I receive. Most, including that one, are given with a view to help me become a better painter. I accept all comments in that light. Good or bad, however they are meant, I try to evaluate them against my work, to improve it. Please, everyone continue with the comments. There is no better help than honesty.
As a side note I apologize for that commet being remailed. It was not intended and I do not know how it happened. But I have taken steps to avoid a repeat of that mistake. Thanks again for all your support.
