"Z" is a child I've know since her birth. She grew up in the gallery below our studios, she's seven now and I see her much less and so now appreciating all the time I was able to spend with her, it was such a gift.
I've been working with this painting on and off for a couple years. It finally feels done and some of the goals I've set for my work are being met here. I want to say more with less but so far it's taking more to get to less, I suppose that's part of learning.
