little genius
16×20″ acrylic on canvas 2001
original painting ::: private collection

the story ::: this painting is based on a photograph of my son trying to read on the couch when he was only one year old. he was holding the book upside down. i thought it was the cutest thing ever. my son was always a smart little boy, putting himself to sleep at a young age, rarely crying as a baby. the way he looks at the book as if he can really read the page, little lips moving as he scans pictures melts my heart. i am still moved by this image that has become a favorite painting of mine.
