The Boys is a 66x60 oil and mixed-media canvas. The painting captures a quiet moment of intimacy between the two boys. The younger brother lies on the bottom, his arm dangling over the edge of the chair as he gazes contemplatively toward the floor. The older brother rests his head between his sibling's shoulder blades, eyes closed and a subtle smile on his lips. The layers of their bodies suggest a deep bond and protectiveness between them. Deliberate strokes of textured gray lines and abstract circles in shades of purple and intense red guide the viewer's eye throughout the painting. Applying oil paint over textured acrylic creates soft yet detailed facial expressions for each child.
