Twirling Syd

A simple moment caught in time.  A young girl sings a song and twirls an umbrella.  A cell phone camera captures the moment.  That moment is shared among friends.  The artist eye sees that moment and the urge to paint is there.

I can see the painting in my mind’s eye.  “Sure!” Mom says.  “I’d love to see you paint this!”

We talk about what the painting could be, i throw out some ideas.  Then, back in the studio, I dive deeper into the image and realize that so much is said in so little.
