New Painting "The Departure"

This is the latest painting I've been working on. It's not quite finished, but I've already named it, "The Departure".

I'm painting from a photograph I took of my youngest son Mickie, before his diagnosis of Autism. I think it's for my own therapy, not that any amount of therapy could ever heal my heart. I can't get over something that is never going to change.

The day I took this photograph, we were visiting Lake Elsinore, in California and Mickie started walking and never looked back, so I let him walk, just to see if he would ever stop. He walked away until he looked really small and I had to run after him. He was 1 1/2 years old.

When I'm finished, I'll post the Painting.

I loved this painting. Mainly after reading how it has been inspirated. How old is your son now?

I wish you a very happy new year.

And thanks a lot for following Flavia`s blog.
