This is one of my favorite compositions of yours, Stephen. I love the blue paint on the left side running down. It’s very please to the eye.
Thats the thing Now a days. There’s too much coming at us and I seem to miss things and find them later. It can be aggravating. Or it can be a delight, like now. This painting made me happy. You give your daughter a look of introspection but still with the innocence of being a child. It’s conveyed in the face. It’s a modern painting with a modern look but it’s still using the convention of figurative realism; I think this is important. We don’t see many paintings like this and, IMHO , it’s important to have painters like you who are still Pushing the envelope.
