"The girl in the painting is of my seven year old, Penelope. She always does interesting hand movements and gestures as she makes her way through daily life. I wanted to try to capture that, as well as a hinting of childish innocence that seven year olds possess. The bird house represents a house. They come and go. The nest is home. It's where the heart is. The house is just a place we inhabit. The nest is where we grow into individuals and become who we are." - Seth Haverkamp
