Artist's Description

Acrylic on linen covered wood panel.

The subject of the painting is the artist’s grandson, Jacob at the end of a long walk. Although the sun was setting, Jake was not ready to return home. In a pause at the school yard, the fixed glimpse of a small boy on the outside of a fence amid the day’s lengthening shadows brought to mind in an instance unbidden thoughts of threats and barriers that must be encontered by a young life unfolding. The lingering ghost of those unwanted thoughts gave rise to this painting.
