Acrylic on Canvas, 12" x 16". The very first painting of the artist. During his 9th birthday, Silva's parents gifted the young artist a complete set of art materials and created this painting afterwards. Silva was self-taught until after he turned 11 years old, and sold his first painting, "The Ressurection of Christ." Other pieces he did between 1981-1983 prior to his formal art classes was a master study of Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper and Mona Lisa, both of which was also sold.
