When first created this painting, I was inspired by the amount of hair worn by my son. I wanted to capture the beauty and innocence of youth and to portray a sense of strenlgth and pride. The folded arms and slightly titled head creates a more interesting subject, lending strength to the pose. The red baseball jersery compliments the subject's dark skin tones, while the white collar creates a nice frame for the head. The comb helps to complete the overall attitude of the figure.
"How we wear our hair has allot to do with how we view ourselves."
