5x7", acrylic on wood panel
When I was little, I used to badger my Mother constantly, "MOMMY, MOM, Mamma! MOM! Mom! Mom! MOMMY! Mawmy! momma!" -you get the idea. I can imagine the delight that a parent experiences when a child first discovers that their hands can smash things, like food, that expensive delicate flowers break easily, that china shatters in the neatest patterns, that utensils make cool noises when they hit the floor, that markers work great on walls, and furniture. This painting wasn't inspired by any of those experiences, it was just a simple discovery.. "Look, Mommy! ..a pretty rock!" "Yes, that IS a pretty rock! Let's take it home and get it wet!" That's what I did with my Mommy, anyway.
Have a nice evening,
