While making this handmade painting, I kept thinking that there is something about the dilemma of a young girl looking forward to life. Hidden nervousness blends with twinkling excitement in the eyes. Her hair plaited neatly but hurried in their weave. And her look into the distance trying to decipher the future.
Will she find what she is looking for? Does she know what she wants or will life show her the right way? Does she need my unsolicited wishes and prayers? Or is she the strong one who will make it happen?
This handmade painting is an ideal gift for someone under your wings. Your daughter, maybe, or your niece. Someone standing at the twilight of childhood and youth. Show them how you saw them when they begun the journey, and wish them to stay calm no matter what comes their way.
