For the next assignment I am choosing to work with...

Image name: Morning of Life
Artist name: David Axel Ericson

Info: "The grand theme of life's journey as seen through the eyes of innocent youth is the subject of this painting, which features the artist's son (David Barnard Ericson, Jr.) at three years old, dramatically poised between the Lake Superior shore and a vast expanse of open water."

Why I like this image: I like this image because it is very beautiful and I love the curiosity in the child's face. I think the soft painting technique captures the emotion of the scene well. The color combination, light shades of blue and grey show to me that the curiosity in the child's face isn't scared but calming.
