Beyond Her Years

Marouscha made me think about painting children, so I thought of this painting which was done a while ago.
I really like painting children.  Their faces are challenging in their simplicity.  When drawing or painting them less is always more.  Many young faces also speak volumes about their lives. This child sold gum to help support her family.  There is definitely both wisdom and sadness in this little face as well as pride.
