4-Year-Old Talented Drummer

(Please click the image to enlarge)

I just posted a new oil portrait, here is the story behind:

Sunday, July 17, 2011, I went to Los Altos farmers market. A beautiful blues voice and music attracted my attention. I walked close by and saw a young girl playing saxophone, and an older guy singing... I heard the drummer playing amazingly too, but could not see anyone there from the crowd.

Unfortunately, it was the last song, and the singer announced that the drummer was 4 years old. It was hard to believe, but it was true.

It was around noon. I saw this little shy mixed boy was holding his mother's hand, standing under the Californian strong sun shining down on his head, while his mother was busy answering questions from other people. I tried very hard to capture the boy's face, and imagined the bright future ahead of him... Sorry I didn't get their band's name, I am sure there are a lot of other people who know:-)!
