Pinoy Boy

The Filipino colloquial word for "Filipino" is Pinoy.  This little Pinoy boy was playing on a beach I visited while on a neighboring island.  I usually -- make that never -- use color on my portraits.  However, this one begged to have color added to the five Peso note.  This portrait impresses my students more than any other.  They think I should be a counterfeit artist.
