I HAVE A DREAM.....


I am working on several things right now, but, wanted something to post. I was going through my file of older paintings and found this, which is actually one of my favorites. I was at an Easter Egg Hunt several years ago and suddenly these two little girls(around 18 mo to two years) turned to each other and hugged. It was too good to be true and I had to paint it and I had to name it after Martin Luther King's famous speech.

This is a pastel, don't have the exact dimensions available, but probably around 20x24.

My little Japanese eyes got about 8 millimeters bigger when I saw this beautiful image. The colors, the composition and the rendering and capture of such a precious moment. I wanted to drink in all in. Wonderful!!!
