A portrait by artist Alana Knuff of five young lads. The portrait shows the boys full length dressed with sport coats and ties and records expressions of relief having just completed a course on etiquette.

“To capture a moment in time on canvas is priceless.   More than a year was spent painting this portrait entitled “The Boys.”  The countless hours needed to complete this brought challenges, new insights and aha moments of great joy.  These young lads, ages 9 to 11, had just finished an etiquette class, learning proper and polite manly behavior, when with patience exhausted “The Boys” resumed being boys.  Capturing such a classic pose is why I paint.” — Alana M.
