This painting shows a side of my daughter Mia. It is one that displays much maturity. A child who is developing adult traits, she often displays much wisdom beyond her 9 years of life. Her relaxed seated pose shows a comfortable acceptance of who she is.
The fact she is sitting on a child's stool is a reminder to us that she is still just a child.
The luminosity and glow of her skin represents youthfulness. The panels of wallpaper are symbolic of an adult setting.
I used complimentary colours such teal green and pink, amethyst and Naples yellow, kings blue and orange. This felt fitting as this is a painting about contrast. Being a child but also displaying adult qualities .
Nothing in life is black and white and things should not be viewed that way. There are always two sides to situations, to personalities and in fact to everything.

Made with a little love
I chose to paint a series of works of my daughter Mia. I wanted to capture different sides to her character. Although she is only 9, at times she seems and looks quite adult. At others very childlike.
This one captures a moment of childhood. An expression. Her hair unkempt and expression accepting of her never ending role to pose for me.
The painting represents my emotions as a mother towards her. The feeling of childhood and also of growing up. An individual with similar attributes to myself yet entirely unique.
I do not see these works as merely portrait of her but more of life reflection .. a savouring of the fleeting moments of parenthood and the love we feel towards our children.
