#21: Found Treasure

6 x 6 oil on panel

This is my submission to the 30 in 30 challenge. As much as I love a backlight figure I still find it difficult to get the values correct. I love this one because of the long shadows and how intent he is upon picking up this stone treasure. Such a wild beach boy he is!

Is anyone else having problems loading Leslie's 30 in 30 blog? It might just be my laptop. I think it's on it's last legs.... sob sob. I'll try using another computer to add this thumbnail to her site. 

Thanks to everyone for all the encouraging comments! I so appreciate that you take the time to stop by and comment!
