Boys of Summer

Chuck Gillies's avatar Chuck Gillies

My painting "Boys of Summer"owes a debt of gratitude to Renoir's 1880-1881 "Luncheon of the Boating Party" and Norman Rockwell's "Freedom from Want". On this day, the boys are just being boys in the summer of their days when everything revolves around baseball and swimming in the lake. The painting consists of thin transparent glazes of acrylic and watercolor, built up over a pastel and colored pencil drawing. Framed it measures 29x37
