Some people ask me how long it took to paint a particular painting. Well, this one took 14 years and several hours! In other words, it has taken me years to develop a comfortable looseness and boldness with color. That splotch of red on this little guy’s hair, a zig on his shirt, and his bright red shorts are nuggets to reel in the viewer. I love the texture of this painting, and of course the placement of my signature color, purple, in the water.
