(14"x11" pastel on gessoed w.c. paper)
Caden my 11 year old 'great' nephew was playing basketball when his Mom (see her portrait here) snapped this photo. I love the shear joy and enthusiasm he is radiating in this shot...if we could only bottle this energy for future use!
When he isn't shooting a basket or stick handling a puck he likes to work on his guitar skills.
Another cool thing Caden has been doing is auditioning for television commercials!
Perhaps one day we'll see his adorable face painted larger than life on a brick wall for an advertisement...
