The Youth Of Marianna-Oil on Canvas

© on canvas/10" X8"/The Youth of Marianna
Marianna, Arkansas: Some of the students in this small rural town paused from their meandering stroll to pose for me in the evening sun.
 I love painting cloisters of figures. 
These boys sort of travel as a unit and it was no problem for them to line up for a unit
hug.The systematic arrangement of these figures along with the color and shapes of their sagging, curvy pants, and the evening light on their warm brown complexions provided a dynamic exploration of color, light and simplified brush strokes.

It is one of my 2 entries selected for the 2015 MVIS juried exhibition in St Louis, MO (location below.) 
  The painting is for show and sale at the venue below:
