i wish i knew too..it was inspired by a photograph i saw from an amazing photographer....he took a lot of photos of his kids, and i believe it may have been his son....as he had tons of him.....the reason i wanted to paint from that photo is because i have a hard time capturing emotion and his expression seemed to be the epitomy of emotion to me...it was quite the challenge for me to capture that. I appreciate your comments and stars. :)

u have very original language.. caught very nice expression
thank you. being self taught and limited with my art skills, i've always struggled with finding my style....i am finally starting to feel like i've found it after all these years. hearing such nice comments helps the confidence levels too. :)

So emotive! Most excellent!!!!!! Like the shades of blue too! Rock on!!!
thank you. it's funny it's one of my paintings i've used the least amount of paint...it was finished so quickly...sometimes i think my paintings are better with less effort.

I feel what you feel
that's what's so good about painting...it's so expressive. i'm pretty happy...but you probably wouldn't guess it with some of the emotions that come through in my paintings. :)

ohh so full of emotions! strongly expressive at the least and the blue convey even more pain, if that is. excellent work! congrats on your well deserved feature Michele
thanks so much. i love showing real emotions of my subjects in my paintings. i've had someone tell me at a show that i should paint my subjects more happy and smiling...and then they would probably want it hanging on their walls. i almost took their advice, but so happy i didn't. :)
