Artist's Description

This is an etching of a young child’s view using symbolic images of doors, a key and rats on the stairway to express her perception of a time and place. The drawing of the child’s face is not finished and much of the meaning of this drawing is reflected in her eyes. How do you interpret what she sees and feels and what the symbols in this drawing represent? This details of this drawing are best viewed in the larger format. Thanks to Sally Omar for pairing her eloquent poem with
“A Child”s View."
So many questions..no answers yet
Times limitations..have not been set
Questioning eyes..filled with doubt
Not knowing yet..what life is about
There are doors..where secrets lie
Cannot determine..just why
A key to a heart..she is not really sure
Perhaps the key..is to a door
A door that will take her..to a different place
Where she will be grown..with a made-up face
Rats running past..or are they toys
Or do the rats..repesent little boys
The stairway goes up.. to another time
Will she be seven..or twenty-nine
A cloak covering life..she just can’t see
That’s because..she’s only three
So many questions..a life just begun
She should just play now..and have fun
