Acrylic on canvas (25 x 30 cm / 10 x 12 in)
Painted by Eldest Sonshine Artist, age 12
This painting was done really quickly on an afternoon where Max was feeling quite restless and short-tempered. He chose a canvas to roller with red and yellow then without waiting for it to dry he went straight in to adding the dark brown at the bottom with his beloved palette knife. Then he scrapes vertical lines through the still-drying paint and announced to me the title. It all happened in about 15 minutes. He finished it very pleased with himself, his breathing was steady and he was in a better mood the rest of the day. I was left feeling incredibly proud. As always.
