"Green Frisbee" revisted




















6 x 6 oil on masonite SOLD

I painted this precious little boy several years ago.
He was playing Frisbee at the park with his Dad. Or
at least
his Dad was trying to play with him. The little
boy
was so mesmerized by the Frisbee itself that he
didn't want to throw it back. I like to think he was a
budding artist and was checking out how
cool the light
looked reflecting on that bright green!

Beautiful light...I like the touch of yellow in the back ground, on the frisbee and then on his face. Beautiful painting...I hope the Dad bought it!

Hi Gwen,

This is magnificent. I'm always impressed that you get so much expression into such a small painting.
It's gorgeous.
