Red Scarf

I've seen this young man several times early in the morning waiting for a school bus, sitting on his instrument case, and have thought it would be a fun subject for a little painting. It has been so cold lately, but like some adolescents, he isn't dressed as warmly as he ought to be. Today I had a few minutes to sketch out my idea, and just because I'm a concerned Mom-type person, I gave him a stocking hat and a bright red scarf, which is probably what HIS mom has been trying to get him to do all along!

  1. It would be fun to show him the picture. Wonder who he is? A high school student? I like the movement and energy of the trees contrasted with his waiting so still. Thanks for warming him up. :)

  2. I don't know why, but I found this so funny. I had to bundle Elsie up in about 7 layers this morning to send her off to school in our -12 wind chill...
