I recently renamed this painting Innocence…

I captured this photo of my grandson Isi, picking buttercups in the garden, He stood studying it for ages, he was in his own little world…

Children have such Innocent minds..It made me stop and think about what might lie ahead of him in his life to come, and that also worried me too. How wonderful this age is to be so innocent of worry and all that is happening in the world around us.
