The appeal of this scene is its universality and illusive story. We don’t know why this little girl is dressed up or what she might be pondering on a beach seemingly alone. What makes this a good painting is the careful sketch of the child and the spontaneous watercolor washes of clear color on a simple background. My intention is to paint more children in deep thought, innocent play, caught in a moment of time.
This painting was intended to be the first in a series to explore the unique and invaluable elements of childhood — children at play, interacting with pets, or just thinking. My own childhood was a rural one surrounded by family, friends, pets, wildlife, and flowers in a small country town. A more simple life than most of today’s children face — there were no computers, cell phones, drugs, crime, only the great outdoors. I had chores and studies to do before I could play. We had to be home for dinner at five and ate our meals together at the kitchen table. The whole family had an early bedtime and got up early. Finally, we didn’t ever lock our cars or houses and when you did something wrong, your parents knew often before you got home.
