Comments: This is a painting of one of my daughters at age 15. She is such a free spirit, and at 15 still had a few more years to spend at home. But I could see the longing in her eyes to see what was down the road, just around the next bend. She is now a ship captain, sailing antique schooners, living a life of adventure. Then she was just a young girl wondering how she was going to get away. I thought her look was longing and poignant, and the fence not much of a barrier .
