New Painting

The DVD Seller
Oil on panel, 16"x12"

This afternoon was my "weekend". I did this small painting from some photos that I took last summer of a kid who sold bootleg DVDs on the street near our compound in the IZ. He was a hustler, too: always had something that he was sure that you needed. And he always had this worried, slightly desperate look on his face. Of course, if you had to make a living selling bootleg DVD's on the streets in Baghdad, you'd probably be worried and slightly desperate, too.
