The Rebel

This is portrait of my neighbor's son Max with his guitar. It is life size and hangs in his parents house in Pasadena. It was completed in February of 2008 in my studio in Pasadena, California. For me, though it's meant to be a portrait, it is a combination of a painting and a portrait, mixing the universal qualities of a teenage boy with the specific likeness of Max.
