Jack Balas, 2016: EL MUNDO NUEVO; (#1321); watercolor, INK & acrylic, ink on 2 paper panels, 45" x 30" overall
NOTE: This portrait was painted in Spring, 2016. Tragically, my model was shot and killed 2 years later late on a Saturday night in March, 2018, in his apartment in Tucson, AZ. He was an engineering student at the University of Arizona in Tucson, who loved playing soccer. In memory of Javier Quiroz, 1994 - 2018.
