I feel like this picture should be captured in oils, it's so endearing. And I think the perfect artist to do it justice would have been Norman Rockwell, who was so good at depicting heartwarming scenes of small-town life in these United States. In fact, I think my brother looks an awful lot like some of the boys Rockwell painted--he could have been one of his models. Look at him up there with his perfectly shaped head, perfectly shaped face, and cute upturned nose...and those blue jeans with the plaid lining are killing me. Everything about him screams "All-American boy."
He reminds me a little bit of this lad.
