Commission Portrait in progress- August 2012

Commission Project: Portrait in progress
Above is a commission project that I am currently working on, about 1/2 the way through. The beginning stages are crucial to setting up a solid foundation for the moves and marks that are to come next. 

My goals for this painting is to capture the spirit and essence of this beautiful little boy, while also expressing a looseness, lightness and freedom in this moment in time. It's a moment of imaginative reflection and close study that we witness. I, as the artist, enter from the perspective of the adult, admiring the curiosity within this wonderful stage in any child's life; so porous and sponge-like, collecting new memories every minute, composing the very beginning identity and shape of himself, who beings to observe the world around him.
