The Thinkers

The Thinkers

Piece description from the artist

"The thinkers" is painting number two in my rural American youth series. I was studying the divide between childish thought and how it one day morphs into adult thinking, and how children long to breach that divide by pretending to be "grown up." In this artwork, the two young girls were showing how "mature" they were with their coffee and trying in a most comical way to show how they too think very deep thoughts. This painting was done with a controlled incandescent side light, and the close crop of the picture plane was meant to show the intimacy of the setting, as well as really get into "their world."
