9X12 Quick Acrylic Sketch on Canvas: I was working on the background when six boys between 8 and 10 came up and started to rig for evening of fishing. I just thrashed out their basic atitudes and postions. Boys at this age are just so very innocent! My wife, Dawn, got some photos for me while I was painting and I’m going to make this a big one 30X30, biggest thing I have done since 1971. It’s really going to be a very complex and difficult piece as they have fishing poles and the sun is behind them. But, I have been looking for a challenge.
