This is the last in the series of a disatisfied child expecting either what she was told or what she asked for. As adults, we can relate… not necessarily from childhood but currently. Wouldn’t we therefore teach children to be able to ask and expect to receive or redirect behavior so the child is able to get that which she expects? These days children or left disappointed and disillusioned with trusting no one. Can we pin point when that started and change our behavior so the outlook of the next generation won’t be as bleak?

This was drawn on 14×17 watercolor paper using black fine and medium tipped pens, red, gold and silver gel ink.

Lenora has been a Counselor/Family Worker for over 20 years. Currently, she has found have an inordinate amount of time working in the geriatric community. Using the time constructively, Lenora was crocheting with some of the ladies, as she use to with her mother who taught her the craft. In so doing, one of the ladies mentioned how she would have liked to have a portrait drawn. Lenora took on the task and was inspired to continue. The illustrations here are mostly inspired by her childhood.

    Looks like this kid’s parents have been trying to please her without asking what exactly she wanted.

    Dave, she asked for a bicycle… but in these days and times where parents have to have two incomes and do whatever they can change to manage a household, somethings get neglected. In this case, listening to the desires of a child. Clearly the child believes she is too old for a trike. Why didn’t anyone notice?

    Your textures are absolutely amazing; as is the character’s faces that you depict! Your unusual and exceptional use of colour is also pretty astonishing, too. ;-)

  • You are too kind Paul. Thank you :)

    I love this little character- Such amazing detail and the scenes worked out really well. I feel for her, she is clearly too old for a trike now. Even her little yorkie dog thinks so lol xx

  • I couldn’t help myself…. I thought about all of the frustrating things a little girl could pout about and this is what I came up with. Thanks for the comments. :)
