This painting, “Tranquilo”, is of the artist’s son at around 7-8 years old. The barefoot boy has climbed a metal pole, completely oblivious to the ominous danger forming in the impregnated mammatus clouds above him, or the worry in his parents’ faces below. His impish grin reflects a tranquil assurance that can only come from living in the moment.
