12×9 original pastel on sanded paper

Drama.  Intensity.  I have my favorite teens.  Students….friend’s kids…..friends of my kids.  I have started going after what I want.  I place myself in positions to capture them best.  This was at a play.  Marika is my favorite teen actress.  She had the lead in Antigone.  I was impressed with her ability to know the verbiage for that Greek lead.  She did a magnificent job.  She is one of those young ladies that will amount to very much.  She is strong, intense and determined.  Yes, she is a favorite.
