Children of the Neighborhood

Jacob Wernet's avatar Jacob Wernet

Michaels Craft Store Winsor & Newton Winton Oil Colors, white gesso, and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store cotton cloth. Ace hardware table saw and The Home Depot lumber, nails, and hanging wire--these are tools I purchased to produce the canvas. What the average person should be looking at is a party of twelve figures in the foreground--children--and the neighborhood, that is the ground. I merrily stand alongside others, with the exception of one in the middle who is seated on his bicycle. Three parked automobiles--cars, considering what part of the world you are from--are the neighbors' across the street.
