"Afternoon Snack" - 16 x 16 inches - oil on canvas - SOLD

"Afternoon Snack" - 16 x 16 inches - oil on canvas

Sometimes the simplest moments in life are the most poignant. My son was eating his after school snack while his dog Cooper patiently waited under the table. This daily ritual will be forever ingrained in my memory.

I really pushed the colors in the painting with a bold orange wall color and aqua blue in his t-shirt. I outlined the shaped in bright pink and allowed bits of it to show through here and there. I added the rug to help anchor the table and give some balance to the composition by adding a dark space towards the bottom of the canvas.
