Very liesurely scene, a pleasure to look at, and I like how you captured the joy in the boy's face. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks everyone, so much appreciate the responses. Its a nice departure, (though short for sure as I go back and forth), from my plein air and landscapes.
I love painting portraits, and would to paint live subjects but up here in the far northwoods of Wisconsin its a little challenging finding any that would sit to be painted. So so far from the scope of their experiences to the point it would be odd for them.
