Eliot 8x11 pastel on wallis

I have been digging through old work lately getting ready for my exhibit in October. It is just good to look at the past with a fresh eye. This is a pastel of my son which I think I did about 6 years ago. I did a series of him to practice portraiture. Even though I can see so many structural and color issues I still love this.
Last week was his birthday and I had lots of fun posting baby photos of him on facebook. He was a good sport. Now 24 and working in Germany I think about him often and was happy to come across this image of him. I do think it captures his soul.

Yes, I am sure it captures it. The pictures made me shiver...
Thank you!
