Pastel Painting ~ Boy In A Sail Boat

(click for larger image)

This pastel painting stopped me in my tracks. It similar qualities to the Thomas Gainsborough painting "The Blue Boy". This painting was actually done by a mother painting her son.

The little boy in the painting is now a grown man, and the painting is quite prescient. The young man went on to win British, European and World Titles in sailing.

Although this is just of a mother painting her son, to me it is worthy of a gallery hanging.
