Good Game

This boy looks like he is really concentrating on the game and dreaming of playing in the big league, some day. I love his face and I was wanting to do a portrait, so, here he is. Pastels on approximately 11×13 velour paper.

And, during these last few weeks, my feeling, which is expressed by Jane Austen in her wonderful book, Emma, has been verified many times.

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. — Mrs. Elton in Emma by Jane Austen

  1. He’s intense! Love it. Interesting quote too. Wasn’t Mrs. Elton somewhat of a bubble-brain? Leave it to Jane to remind us that even a bubble brain can hit the nail on the head sometimes. 🙂 There’s hope for guys like me!
