Pastel Portrait of Eli

I have never tried to do a portrait before but I thought, why not? This is the pastel that I did of my grand-nephew, Eli. I did it from a photograph that I took about a year and a half ago. He has changed quite a bit since then, of course, and learned to say "No". The joys of being 2.

You captured a nice moment, Martha. He looks so deep in thought about... like a wise old soul in a tiny body.
