Jack Balas, 2017; EL MUNDO PEQUENO (#1461); watercolor, ink and acrylic on paper, 30" x 22"

NOTE: This portrait was painted in Spring, 2017, a year after EL MUNDO NUEVO. Tragically, my model was shot and killed 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.
