Although I’ve painted many different figures, I was always very sentimental watching and observing my own children and others growing up. How quickly time passes by! The children’s awe of nature, their simple pleasures and their innocence to the world around them inspired me to capture these precious moments. How wonderful it would be if we could all apply these simple pleasures more often in our own lives.
