This painting is number nine in my rural American youth series. It is an exploration into light effects and design, as well into the mischief of a young Aunt with her little niece. I decided to allow the girls to show their inner selves, all arranged by the weak light of twilight and an incandescent farm light. The close crop of the picture plane and the disorientating perspective were accentuated to animate the young girls with childish impulse. This artwork was created in studio from several shorter studies, and one longer study of both the little girl and the young woman.
