Trip of Our Youth

Photos simply cannot capture the excitement and details of this entry. "Trip of Our Youth" is a collection of three large ( 4 ft. x 5 ft. ) oil paintings; "Aspiring to be Great", "Playing for Keeps" and "Thinking Happy Thoughts" intended for side-by-side display. Children are the focus, and have faces much larger than life - thus stressing their importance within our society. Images within the clouds are inspired by the way people, especially children, enjoy the care-free pastime of interpreting shapes among clouds. The clouds surrounding each child subtly reference the child's life. A single word is also whimsically incorporated into each piece to reconnect the viewer with childhood play and curiosity.
