acrylic on masonite
My daughter is a whiner, and defiantly a force to be reckoned with, she usually won’t take “no” for an answer. The first time anyway. This particular time she stood at my feet making demands. Instead of a long “meaningless” conversation with her, I calmly took my camera and photographed her at this very interesting angle. At least one of us walked away happy. I never really thought how different children must see our world having to always looking up at us from their small three foot perspective.

This is a great portrait from a great perspective. I just love your work but especially love the portraits. You have a great talent for capturing the moment in the person's face.

You say that I handle acrylics like oils?.....You are the one who has obviously mastered the medium. Thanks for commenting on my undergraduate senior show works. I am sorry that you were disappointed but I assure you that your disappointment is matched by my disappointment in my "higher education" that I actually paid for. I learn more by daily painting than from my four years of viewing abject art deemed avant garde.
