Restless Ring Bearer

20 x 20 in. Oil on Linen Panel

Obviously, I am not going to make it to 30 paintings in 30 days.  I enjoyed the crab paintings last week, but I wanted to paint this little boy, and I wanted it to be 20 x 20 inches.  I will continue to post on Leslie Saeta's Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days, though.  Leslie's motivation for the challenge is to get us into our studios, so I'm good.

In 2008, my husband and I sang in a friend's wedding.  This little boy was unbelievably cute.  I snapped several photos of him and saved them.  I remember thinking that I wanted to paint him in this pose.  You should see the video of him dancing at the reception, oblivious of the enchanted onlookers.
