Soccer painting of Boy

I thought I might share a soccer painting I did for someone who has followed my paintings.  They took the photograph of their eight year old son playing soccer in his after school sports program.   The painting is 5 feet by 6 feet, acrylic on unstretched canvas.

Soccer Painting Boy Kicking Soccer Ball Art

As you can see by the way this boy approaches the ball that he knows how to kick a soccer ball. You can tell that he has a high soccer IQ.   Even being so young he looks quite impressive the way he is running down the field.  I’d say, a natural athlete.  I really don’t know anything about him other than receiving the photo.  But it is fun to make up stories about the boy in the painting.  So, the questions are:

  1.  How old is he?

  2. How long has he been playing soccer?

  3.  What position does he play?

4.Soccer Boy Kicking soccer Ball  Does he play other sports?

5,  Was one of his parents an athlete?

  1.  How is he doing in school?

7;  What does he want to be when he grows up?

The questions could be endless.
