The ball game

The ball game

Piece description from the artist

This painting is number ten in my rural American youth series. It is an exploration into light effects and design, as well as the innocence of the universal subject matter: a ball game between children. The close crop of the subject matter and the focused perspective were accentuated to heighten the intimacy of the subject as the brother and sister play with an unknown entity beyond the picture plane. This artwork was created in studio from several shorter studies, and one longer study of both the little girl and the little boy together.
