"This is a painting of my daughter, Penelope. My goal was to create a painting that walked the line between overly-cute and overly-dramatic. The original intention was for her to be holding a string with an object dangling from her hand. During the process of creating the composition, I had her drop the object where she proceeded to do a somewhat strange hand gesture. I thought this made for a more compelling image where the hand, in essence, became the prop." – SETH HAVERCAMP
