Artwork Description

Oil Paint on linen, ready to hang

Signed on the front

This is from a series of portraits I painted for an exhibition called 'The People of the School', a series of portraits of adults and children who were part of a remote Aboriginal school community I used to visit in my work as a teacher educator. This image was from the annual book week where the kids would throw themselves into dressing up as characters from books and films. This small girl from the Transition/Reception class was watching the others finish getting dressed up before they all went on the parade around the main streets of the community. I loved the contrast with her fairy-ness and the work of the handwriting lesson that had just been completed and glimpsed on the desk on which she leans (fairies have to go to school too!). Her sense of expectancy as she looks over at the others really drew me in.
