Father and Son

It is midnight as I put down my pastels from this soldier and son portrait. I have once again painted till I can't see anything straight but the portrait yet I could not stop till I felt the soldier's presence here with me, looking back at me. His son is actually joyous and there is a fine line between that expression and crying and it is important to keep it light and airy in capturing the tender moment.
