This portrait of my eldest son Scott at 18yrs was drawn from a photograph taken in a chance moment. I was attracted to the strong contrasts and play of light across his body, the deep shadow on his face, and his direct one-eyed gaze. I like the way the handful of cash creates questions and leaves the piece open to interpretation by the viewer.
