Best Friends

Best Friends

Oil on birch panel, 2010, 5"x 7"

Todays painting is an image from the photographer/filmmaker Gordon Parks. He shot this in black and white at the Fredrick Douglas housing project in NYC in 1942. The picture just inspires me and makes me happy so I did my own version of it. Two kids, best friends, on a beautiful day, making the most of things.
