“The Young Violinist”


Oil     6”x8”     Canvas Board

My nephew just started playing the violin a few months ago and he’s doing phenomenally well. I wanted to capture the concentration and determination he brings to these early days of mastering a new instrument. It’s a real challenge to catch the likeness of somebody you’re close to. I must have repainted it 50 times! I finally had to just quit tweaking things. I hope I came close enough that he’ll at least see something of himself in this little portrait.
