Glen, 48 x 36 inches, acrylic on canvas by Washington DC artist Leslie M. Nolan

Starting from a pose by my husband, I placed the figure in the rectangle to best advantage.  The pose not only radiates strength, but also wistfulness, characteristic of young men coming into their own.  Wanting to convey yearning, youth and energy, my color selections and brushwork express excitement and vibrancy to achieve those goals.

I very much like the raw feel of the piece. Doing more would give it a polished, slick look — the exact opposite for a young man with his whole life in front of him!
