I wanted to try out another portrait, and I think this one is a great accompaniment to Innocence.
I didn’t have anything in mind when I started it, but the geometric light variations and the “children crossing” sign seemed like an interesting way to express a youngster who is innocent, but nearing adolescence (when things start to go topsy-turvy).
I’m loving portrait exploration, and am pretty confident that this is one of the avenues I want to go down after graduation. Maybe for hobby, but maybe even beyond that… time will tell!
Anyway, I don’t have much else to say; I think I’m all talked out. What I can say is that the innocence of a child is refreshing, and often humorous.
Me: So, your mom called and told me that the truck broke down this morning and you were late to school.
Grandson: Yeah. Well… do you want to hear the REAL story?
Ha! I think he was 5 at the time and I’ll never forget that conversation! What a riot. So, that’s my word for today. Innocence. I love innocence.
Have a fantastic week everyone! Keep smiling!
