Woodcarver's Son

This boy is the son of Henry Wallace, a well-known wood sculptor in the Red Bays community of Andros Island in the Bahamas.The Bahamian government considers Henry a living legend, and I am fortunate to have one of his wood carvings displayed in my home. 

In this oil pastel of the Woodcarver's Son, I am drawn to the little boy's eyes. Over the years, this child has been the impetus for many of my paintings.
