Look Left!

Look Left 12x12 Oil on Panel
Yesterday I was down on Orchard, and I saw this family come across the street, and stop and wait at a crosswalk.  They were patiently waiting for the signal to turn, but as I looked at them, I was just struck by the way they were standing there.  The girl was at that magical age just before she is suddenly embarrassed to be seen with Mom and Dad, much less holding hands before crossing the street.  The little boy was just totally content to have both parents holding his hand.  Quite honestly, it reminded me a lot of my childhood.  It was lovely to see, especially because you see so many kids out with their nanny, much less a whole family out and about together.  Kind of cool.
