Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

"He posed with a stance of victory while the reporters took their photographs to record his successful hot air balloon flight. He is a brave young lad."

I came upon a magazine ad for boy's attire dressed in the style of vintage wear dating in the 1930's. He caught my eye with his endearing pose and such a serious look on his face. Wearing a shirt and tie with a cream colored cable knit sweater vest, tweed knickers with argyle socks and his "newsboy" cap. He looked as though he had just completed his first flight in a hot air balloon. The backdrop was just as intriguing as the boy himself with a slate blue sky and the contrasting shadows of the hot air balloon at rest as it lay on a field of yellow green grass. Striking.

This painting is sprayed with a mat varnish to protect the soft pastel. It will be packaged between two cardboard sheets for greater protection and stability.

Also included will be a certificate of authenticity along with the original concept sketch.
