in college, i always wondered why people would paint something you could just take a picture of & then photoshop? however, now i see why. painting people the way you see them is a beautiful thing. i still prefer to paint in a more abstract way, even though my painting-a-days suggest otherwise.
so, tonight, we have a little boy with a kite, taken from a couple photos. it's one of the smallest paintings i've done to date, and it didn't take me long to paint-- but the planning took an hour! maybe watching TV didn't help my timing either. :)
