a portrait a day: floyd

floyd is 6. His mother says he is creative, cheerful, kind, he notices details and he loves soccer. The thing that struck me most in the picture she sent were his eyes that looked as if they were well aware of all the perils of our world. And I started thinking about how children can seem such old souls because of their eyes. And how we would like it if they had old mouths as well.

portret en tekst van kitty kilian.  meer portretten hier.
vind hem prachtig! en floyd vindt dat zelf ook trouwens. hij krijgt dit bijzondere kunstwerkje (traditiegetrouw) voor zijn verjaardag.
