Acrylic on Canvas 11"H x 14"W x 1.5"DA portrait of a young boy in a poor community in China. This piece is part of my "For The Least of These" series about the needs of impoverished children around the world. The intention of this painting is to pose the question of who the boy is waiting for. Is it someone else or is it you who can offer help? A visual reminder to have an impact on the world. Layers of acrylic paint and washes are built up in the background to create texture that evokes the passage of time. A limited color palette is used in this series to echo the limits faced by those lacking basic needs like clean drinking water, food, and adequate care.
Waiting for You
