Kuna Kid with Friend
This painting was done on commission and based on a photograph taken by the customer.  What intrigued me about the photo was the level of detail that would have to be achieved if the painting was to be a success.  Also, the wide range of colors and the lights and shadows were wonderful.  The canvas was a big one for me, about 30x40 inches.   I think it turned out well, and I am happy to report that the customer, too, was very pleased.
