Last summer I took a million pictures at the county fair and then decided to paint this one. These two had just bought homemade ice cream and were sitting outside the small animal petting zoo area. I like their expressions in the picture with one blankly staring and brother pulling a face. I love the colors of the fair. I especially enjoyed painting Ethan’s hand. Normally I don’t love hands but with these I wasn’t trying very hard and just blocked in the values and thought I’d come back to them and finish. But when I revisited them I decided they were perfect the way they were.
