Millennial;We Got This
2017 oil on canvas, 40x30"
This portrait of my nephew Fisher represents to me the hopeful enthusiasm and confidence of the young generation he is a member of to take care of our world now that their time has come. The setting is in my local Fish Creek Park, a beautiful and natural place where I walk daily, often with my millennial children. The setting is very appropriate for a portrait with this theme as nature will be one of the primary forces they will have to contend with and cooperate with throughout their time here.
