Animalia

Acrylic on canvas

My son Eddie was just a toddler when I painted this series. I wanted to portray the essence of innocence in these portraits of baby animals. Each one is a different mood that I have sensed from my own son as a mother. I am sure parents will recognize these expressions in their own offspring.

I did not use too many layers of colors for these portraits. I wanted them to seem like they were waiting for more layers. These are pictures of young creatures and they have so much more room to grow.
