The sun shines into the heart of my child

The story behind the painting

I think we all have an inner ageless child and when I read this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson it resonated with me and inspired the title of this painting: “The sun illuminates only the eye of the man, but shines into the eye and the heart of the child.” But the title came after the painting, it actually just started with me wanting to show how grateful I am to my inner child, that she is alive and kicking. She makes me a better person.
