Artist's description:

This acrylic painting is from a series of photographs I shot of two Brazilian friends of mine, Wellington and Israel. They posed for me on a beach on an island in the bay of Salvador, Bahia. I purposely avoided fine detail in this painting, choosing instead to imply detail with well-placed broad brushstrokes depicting light, shadow and color. In my opinion big, bold brushwork like this gives the viewer more room to supply his/her own detail and encourages more emotional connection with the art. PLEASE NOTE: This original acrylic painting is on unstretched canvas and will be shipped rolled. Take it to your framer just as you would a stretched canvas; stretching a canvas prior to framing is a standard service by any good custom framer.
