    In opening this one, it is so well resolved visually that I take things to be as they appear. And as such, it feels wide open and fresh. To me this one is about a child who is nearly a blank canvas, full of possibilities and imagination. I think a particularly lyrical part is that the clouds and the breaking waves are handled in similar ways, owing to the overall lightness and pale purples. It feels like that handling is a deliberate part of the theme.

    The figures of the child, the birds and butterflies are what have attention and focus given them where they have a symbolic presence. I love the idea of him being surrounded by guardians - not the fierce type, but the guides, like students from The Jiminy Cricket School of Advanced Reflections on a practical field trip. Ah, Grasshopper. . .

    It's very well painted indeed, Ms Coops. And it feels thoroughly uplifting. ____

    Beautiful painting my friend, very well done...love the sky texture and the butterflies added a nice touch :-)
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.
