At what point, do we as women, let go of the little girl within?

The answer is; hopefully, we never do!

Life is always in a state of transition. We transition from a little girl to a teenager and then transition from an employee to a mother and grandmother. Where does one end and the other begin?

This is the concept of the new painting I am working on. It shows a young woman talking on a cell phone to one of her closest friends. The conversation is serious yet she still is in touch with the child within by clinging to her favorite doll. The doll and the girl are dressed identically again blurring the transition from childhood to adult.

I've chosen to work with acrylic paint on a 30"x40" canvas. The colors are extremely bold using stylized geometric shapes. I intentionally exaggerated the color and style to express a child like feeling.

Please add a comment on how you are still clinging to your childhood?
