"A KID I SAW AT THE SKATEPARK"
36 x 36 inches
Oil and acrylic on canvas
He stood out from the rest. His hair was the wildest. His vibe was the most electric. The look on his sun-splashed face said more than the others that today was a good day ... not to die ... but to snap his ankle in two. Maybe a wrist. It was okay.
Watch me skateboard, he was saying, as he flew through the air with the board glued to the bottom of his worn-out sneakers, as if it were the last day on Earth kids could skateboard.
I was mesmerized ... and then I went home and painted him.
