Children at the Fountain
Children at the Fountain will be included in the American Artists Abroad juried art exhibition at the Bennington Art Center in Vermont. I found these children playing at a fountain just off the square in Cuernavaca, Mexico. I was fortunate to have my camera with me and managed to get several photos of them before being noticed. People engaged in activities they enjoy are one of my favorite things to paint. I consider myself very fortunate when they remain unaware of my presence long enough for me to get some images to work from. I really enjoyed doing this painting and will probably revisit the subject matter in the future, perhaps with a different composition or a more impressionistic approach.
