Paintings of Children
Paintings of children are captivating. How can you not look? So many questions and so much innocence. They have not yet grown into subtleties yet as we do when we mature. They are still young enough to be honest in all matters because they haven’t yet learned how not to be. There first need seems to be love, and they are so ready to love others without prejudice. No worries and no cares.
Isn’t there a point in life when we all wish things could be simpler? There sure is for me! Wouldn’t it be great if we were all able to go to a place in life where we could all just walk along the road hand in hand with a good and trusted friend. We would be these paintings of children.
This boy’s biggest worry in life was whether the fish were going to bite that day. My oldest daughter, her husband and their two sons were camping at Lake Delta that summer morning. Above, he is one of the children in paintings. The boy is now a man, as well as being my oldest grand-son, Jacob.
Our second grand-son, Josh was his Aunt Bobbi’s and my favorite.
Rebecca, my grand-niece also became one of the children in paintings when I couldn’t resist a photo of her practicing soccer.
