Artist's Description

Acrylic & India ink art marker on canvas, 18×24 inches.

This painting is actually a late stage extension of my childhood sexual abuse painting series. It symbolizes a quiet, nostalgic yearning for those lovely parts of my childhood that were either lost or at least, diminished, amidst the ugliness of the abuse.

If interested, you can see the entire abuse series at http://www.gjefle-art.com/abuse/abuse-index.htm

You can also see this paintings “sister” piece here on Redbubble.

A somewhat significant difference between these two related paintings is the eye color. In the painting above, the eyes more closely match the desert sand. In “The Premonition Dreamt it was a Child”, the eyes are green – envious of the childhood it can’t really have.
