Day 11: Just Like A Child – Moment in the Spotlight

Laura Tetrault - Moment in the SpotlightI’ve never attempted to paint the human blur that is my oldest daughter. She is ALWAYS in motion, always looking for a stage to get up on. She is energy and drama and never dull.

Sometimes it can be a little exhausting – but that is only because I don’t have her energy!

So in this painting where new things are colliding (painting children and painting family) I wanted to express the randomness that my daughter acts out of, her energy, her movement and the star quality she sees when she looks herself in the mirror.

Children are different – their bodies have different proportions – especially the face. Hopefully I portrayed a little girl and not a small woman – if you know what I mean.
