In the 21st century, with an endless number of photographs being part of our everyday lives, some images are unforgettable. As I read the newspaper or peruse a magazine, I am drawn to images of children in particular, whose expressions of joy, playfulness, vulnerability, sadness, or fear are on the surface. I keep a file of such pictures and the ones that stay seared in my mind often inspire paintings. I do not copy them, however, but use them as a starting point from which my imagination takes off.
