Child’s Hand Holding Flower

And onward in the daily photo regimen…

I took this photo while at a restaurant in Hawaii with family.  I thought the moment it showed was just so… cute, unassuming, timeless…  innocent.  I sat on the photo for a while, not sure what I wanted to do with it, how to finish it.  I finally went with simple and clean, no textures, hopefully not shockingly bright colors, etc.  I did darken up the table background quite a bit, but left just a touch of the texture and the lines across it to give clarity to the image.  An all black background made the photo seem a bit too disconnected from the world. This was just a simple moment of childhood playtime and I wanted to represent it as such.

I liked this enough to post it to… feel free to check out my website if you want a taste of my art.  It goes all over, as you can see if you browse this blog or my flickr page as well (flickr:  Enjoy!
