The Cheeky Chappie
Before anybody makes too many comments about this artwork let me make them. First comment not really all the great an example of a well executed portrait. Comment two I am sure I could have found a much more interesting character to try and portray. The third thought that it always brings to mind is that it could be used to frighten children away from dangerous places.
This was my first attempt at painting a person and it is painted from the face you see elsewhere on this blog. Ii was painted using pastels and nobody in my family likes it so it lies in the bottom of a cupboard in my paint room.
I chose this picture because the story I used on my other blog tells of the golfer and the elf. This story always reminds me of the day I was playing the fifth hole of a golf course. The golf course had a “dry stane dyke”, a stone built wall across the middle of the fairway hiding the green from view. I played my shot over the wall; the people on the other fairway were jumping up and down like little elves. I had my one and only hole in one.
