The paintings in this series are dotted with elements of wonder and play inviting the viewer in. They recall the voice of children marveling at nature and discovering life as divine. Remembering our childhood and embracing the mystery of life can bring back a sense of wonder for the world. From time to time, especially in challenging times, we forget what we mean when we say "playfulness." We forget that there is such a thing. We forget that we are capable of being playful. Thinking of the amazement a kid experiences when blowing bubbles and seeing the iridescent circles they produce or when finding a glittering stone on a walk. It’s like soaking your soul in a healing bath.
This painting 'Through unclouded eyes' evokes a more dynamic and energetic feeling. It makes you think of young children hopping around from one discovery to the next one. Their face speaks Joy! Fascination! Amazement!
The painting refers to children who truly see the world through unclouded eyes. In everything they see beauty and hope. It never ceases to amaze me what the eyes of a child see that the eyes of adulthood cannot, as they have become so blinded by the tediousness of life. The world would be a better place if only we could all look upon it through the eyes of a child.
