The Frolic, 16″ x 20″ oil on linen canvas board, framed by the artist.
The Frolic depicts a strong little girl in her joyful frolic through downtown Charleston, on the corner of East Bat and Water Street, from the battery board walk, a common tourist perspective. But wait, there is a giant girl frolicking downtown, toward the Battery. This little girl is based on a real girl – we’ll call her Tia. Tia and her lovely family visited my installation at the PSOAE last year. Her larger than life personality really captured my heart. I told them I might have to incorporate Tia into a future painting. Mom loved it so its mother approved! But it is my hope that the painting enjoy universal appeal.
The Frolic is both a vacation memory and a commentary on joy. But what does it mean? To me it represents a future where anything is possible. The world is changing (not fast enough). This painting is a promise and a hope that in the future, the beauty and bounty of the world will truly be available to everyone. Tell me what you think in the comments
