Good Morning?


12"x 12"
acrylic on masonite

Saturday, March 9th, marked the opening day for the Farmers' Market. After a long, dark, cold, winter, most of us were thrilled to get outside. This is the ONLY time of year that I feel like singing a Barry Manilow song: "We made it through the rain....." and the over all mood seemed to be of relief to have survived the winter, and excitement and anticipation for summer! I was struck by the posture of this little one who seems confused about all the fuss and would be happy to be back home in bed!

Bwuahahaha!!! I can so relate!!! You captured that dazed, bed headed expression PERFECTLY! I had my first good laugh today. Thank you Annie!

Heather said...

LOVE IT! My mind is turning trying to figure out all the different internal dialog this boy might be having.

Dana Cooper Fine Art said...

Annie, this is wonderful. I love the strong side light, terrific shadows. I especially like the tinge of lavender in his little collar and the shadow on the ground. Well done.

Jana said...

That's terrific! You really captured his befuddled look---great job!

I just LOVE this! He is adorable. That body language and expression is priceless. So young and still he says it all. Something tells me he's very intelligent. He just has that "wise" look. Little Benjamin Button. The title is great!

You've nailed it on this one Annie. He looks like he's just been lifted out off bed and is wondering what all the fuss of getting up early for market is all about. Great job

I love this, Annie. Great subject matter, beautifully rendered. And your gathering of ladies on the wall is very cool, too. Such interesting subject matter and I love the touch of humor in Good Morning? :)

He'd probably like to get back to cereal and cartoons. I think he exemplifies what I love most about little boys. I love this.
