    The title says it all. Aren't we all just "longing for youth"?
    Hope you like this one which I have just completed. It is the Andrea 54mm kit based on a Norman Rockwell painting. It has been completed in acrylics and oils. I have tried to keep to the original artwork as much as possible and used the excellent article by Julio Cabos in the Figure International magazine number 34 as a guide.

    Great Scott, ahma . . . "longing for youth"

    Hello John:

    Wow, I see you just posted this a few minutes ago. I really like this piece.
    And yes I am an oldster, past 70 yrs. of age. Indeed, where did time go???

    Very well done, John. I would have liked to see some closer photos but these
    are fine, just the same. Norman Rockwell? Oh my, . . .one of the great
    artistic icons of the 20th Century here in the US of A. And in the years before
    him there was N.C. Wyeth, Charles Russell and my favorite, Frederick
    Remmington. Oh gee, is that one "m" or two????

    Congrats on a very nice piece that brings to mind, for me at least, what
    value life can have. I see it as being about "relationships". . .
