"Happy" #20 of 30 paintings...(not in 30 days anymore since it's February)

6"x6" Pastel on board

This face just makes a person smile :D   I was looking through my reference files and came across the picture of this guy.  He just looked at me with those big brown eyes and said "Pick me....Paint me!"

I normally would've chosen a different color for the background.  Maybe something darker in value.  It's amazing how our moods and first impressions govern the outcome of our thoughts. (I needed to see something that reminds me of the Sun)  This color really complimented this little guy and I always think of yellows as "energy" and "happiness".  What better color to use behind that smile!
