Inspired by a child

He was eating pizza at the kitchen table, laughing and blowing bubbles in his chocolate milk with a bright orange straw when I brought out the camera and he revealed himself as the ideal model.

My little neighbor loves to clown for the camera.

He posed with apples in his hands.
He held a daisy for me.

And when he blew a dandelion, I knew I wanted to do another dandelion piece.

I've been working on art for a children's hospital and this healthy boy was great inspiration.

You've seen my charming model. 
Now here's  peek at one of the pieces that resulted.
