The artist states: “My current obsession is painting watercolor portraits, so I am always on the lookout for new subjects, especially on sunny days. I discovered this little boy running around on the playground one late summer morning. With his mother’s permission, I snapped several photos of this little red headed dynamo! I wanted to capture his innocence and energy as he ran around without a care in the world.
