"Jamaican Children"

Here is the final version of the painting I started earlier. The pencil study was done in the 1980s, but I did not feel I could do it justice at that time. I wanted to capture the joyous enthusiasm of the children and a sense of the lyricism and rhythm of
island life. It brings to my mind some of my favorite music of Jamaica by Scotty and Eric Donaldson.
"Jamaican Children" is a 30" x 40" oil on canvas painted in 2010.
