this is a painting from a photo of some little boys i took in South Africa. when i was there for a couple months, i had some unique opportunities... for one week, we went a did some physical labor around a camp of homes for orphaned kids. it was especially neat because each home had a married couple who were the father & mother to these orphans. many of the kids were "dropped off" and infected with HIV, but were nursed to health so the disease didn't progress to HIV-AIDS. it was pretty incredible to be there.
