"I came home from the studio one evening, entirely exhausted, and there was our son Raphael plopped on the floor going at it with his new toy. It was so picture perfect I couldn’t have posed him any better. He hadn’t even taken his coat off; he was so entranced with his doodles. I knew I had to capture the moment, and being quickly rejuvenated I grabbed my clay and went to work on the small maquette. It was very rewarding to have one of the life-sized versions end up at the Etch A Sketch headquarters in Bryan, Ohio." Gary Lee Price

The artwork is a sculpture of a young child lying on his stomach, propped up on bent elbows, with legs relaxed and slightly bent at the knees. The child is attentively engaging with an Etch-a-Sketch® toy that lies flat on the surface in front of him. The textured surface of the sculpture captures the details of the clothing, hair, and folds of the fabric. The child's demeanor is one of concentration, indicative of a moment of creativity and fun.
