The Smile

A portrait of happiness depicting simplicity, innocence, and contentment. An Aboriginal child holding a kangaroo embodies a lot of history. I find myself forced to leave this work in a grayscale pallet as it portrays timelessness to me: a moment in a time capsule. I further block off the background with an impression of a corrugated sheet to leave the actual background to the viewer’s imagination: you fill it as you wish, with perhaps either a scene or a poem.
