I love her expression of confidence! This brings me so much peace to see this strength in children. This is fuel to continue and work hard for the future I would like for my children and my community. The swing is balance and movement representing so much, mostly fun. I’m looking for balance and peace, this is someplace I find it.
I wanted to capture so much with this painting but his tired eyes after a long day was what pulled me in.
I want to capture the key elements that convey the feeling in the image. I don’t want all the detail, I want the emotion, confidence, and strength in her face and body.
His smile stands out and I didn’t want to loose the big kid teeth but it was the tired eyes that I love.
