"Sticky Situation" is a series of four colored pencil drawings I did last year. I "hired" my youngest son as my model and paid him with a large bag of bubble gum which he thought was a great deal. He's a wonderful model, but he's becoming so savvy now that he is beginning to ask for a fee. I had to pay him $5 for a recent sitting. Hopefully, it will be a long while before he finds out that the going fee is much higher; however, I do not think he will ever sit again for gum.
