Description: We have lived in Ireland on several occasions. We saw this group of wonderfully-outfitted preschoolers on a beautifully sunny and warm day the first time we lived there. Like seemingly everyone else in the city, they and their teachers had come out to enjoy the day. They were so adorably perfect in their little uniforms! It was how they acted, however, that appealed to my Reality With a Twist sensibilities and made me want to paint them. I loved that no matter how perfect they looked they were still were little kids - distracted by their own thoughts and sometimes even acting out. I spent a long time on this piece, and part way through I realized that value and texture of the dark log wall they actually were sitting in front of would have overwhelmed the piece, so I stopped painting and declared the piece done. I have painted and sold two other similar groups of small children. Maybe some day I’ll get permission from their owners to make those works available to have prints or cards made of them.
