I am also an scwbi member and was curious about your website. This painting in particular spoke to me. I am wondering what this young boy is looking at, the positioning of the scrolls amidst the luggage, is he the one leaving. There is a story here. Nice work!
Thank you Wanda,
It is nice to get your email. As you can see, I am not skilled with this blog. I didn't know that you had written to me. Sorry it took so long to respond. I'm getting the hang of 21st century technology.
Thanks for your question about the boy and the scrolls. Yes, there is a story here. He is not going anywhere. The scrolls, the baggage, and the boxes were all left to him by his recently deceased mother. They are filled with photos, recordings, etc. that become lessons in life. Knowing she was going to die, she created these lessons for him, so that she can have an impact on his growth even after she is gone.
Well, thank you again Wanda, I'll see you around scbwi.
