My son playing in a forest a few years ago. I've always loved the composition in the photo, and I finally mustered the courage to tackle the various elements in the picture: landscape, portrait, figure study, movement study. Tricky, but I think it came out ok.

Hope you like it.

Now feeling queasy, reminded me an injury sustained at about that age, riding a scooter down a slalom course, whilst blindfolded. If you could please avoid painting treestumps, and whilst you are at it barbed wire fences, thanks.

That’s a really detailed piece of work. I’d be pleased to take a photo like that, let alone be able to paint it.
To my eye, your work gets better and better.

Looks really nice!
How do you get the child to float while you paint the picture? ;)

That is great! I love your work.
Coincidentally, I did that very thing when I was young in track shoes. No serious damage but I didn’t walk right for a few days.

I know nothing about painting, but I see depth, dimension and detail in your work.
In this painting, I see my buddies or me, in the woods/creek by our homes, back in 1968!
