Art Painting Watercolor Portrait Black Boy Jamaican Print, hues of emerald green, deep violet and vermillion.


This is Chad.

Tho' to hear the older children call him, it sounds like "Chud".

"Chud, Chud, stop tawk an' siddung Chud"
Translation: Stop talking and SIT DOWN, Chad.

He is full of beans, as are most little 7-year old boys. He is Shara's little brother -- likkle brudda. Last year's school report said that Chad was "very intelligent, with great potential for high achievement, but he must not miss so many days of school......" Chad is full of questions and answers and funny faces and uncanny observations.

But he cannot always afford lunch money.

Or books.

Or school fees.

Or a pair of shoes and a uniform.

So Chad misses too many days of his public school.


This is an archival-quality print of my watercolor painting "Chud, Chud, stop Tawk an' siddung Chud."

Prints smaller than 13X19" are printed on Hahnemuehle's William Turner paper - a mould-made 100% cotton paper, 310gsm, with a slightly textured surface. Larger prints are printed on Somerset Velvet archival art paper. Both are printed with Epson pigment-based inks.

All prints have a .5 inch border.

This print is hand signed by me and will be shipped in either a flat in a rigid mailer via USPS or rolled in a mailing tube.

This listing is for the print only, mat and frame are not included.
