Alphabetical Archival Advent Calendar – …quiet moment…

Q….. quiet moment…. Acrylic on paper. Date? (The children are around 3 and 7 here so I probably painted this 2004-5?)

It was a quite a challenge finding something to represent ‘Q’ and was planning on using this portrait for ‘s’.

My daughters were sitting in a pool of bright sunshine eating the most delicious strawberries from their little coloured bowls, they looked serene and tranquil against the backdrop of a dark red settee …. a picture of perfect children. In the real world they were mesmerised by the one eyed monster in the corner, they were totally engrossed in an episode of The Simpsons! The title of the portrait has flipped between ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘The Strawberry Eaters’.

You can make your own judgements about the quality, it was only the second time I had use acrylic paint and didn’t (still don’t) really know what I was doing!
