Hard At Work-Boy Figurative

 Close ups

Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Jess, in Florida, was the gracious host this week who provided a bunch of colorful photos!
This Jess's boy having fun at the beach.  I tried to go with the "less is more" theory and staying loose. This one just seemed to flow right along. Hope you like it.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and leaving a comment!

Psalm 56: 3-4         "But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you. I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?"
