This is an original acrylic painting on canvas. The subject is a Brazilian boy named Israel, who was 19 when he posed for me near Salvador, the city in Bahia where he was born and raised. I used bright colors both in the body and the background to evoke the colors I always see and feel when I'm in Bahia. The image area of the painting is approximately 21"x33". PLEASE NOTE: This artwork 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.
