This is a painting!

David M. Lenz is the First prize winner Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition 2006, National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian institution.

This portrait, Sam and the Perfect World looked like a photograph until I got my nose right up next to the monitor. It is stunning.

The painting is wonderful.
The boy's posture and expression is delicious.
The scenery reminds me of the trip we took to Point Reyes where we took a photo overlooking a fence like this, the field, and eventually the ocean.
Great find.
