Oil on mounted linen – 6 x 7 inches – Private Collection
This was an accidental portrait. One summer I looked across the street and there was my neighbors’ young son making big bubbles, everything backlit by the sun. I grabbed my camera and took a number of photos from which I did this small study. It felt odd to think of taking it across to his parents – here, buy this – so I hung it in my home. Eventually I had a party and someone pointed it out . . . and it now hangs on their wall where it belongs.
