A painting by the artist James Foort called: Tossing The Baby

Tossing The Baby

The man is to receive the tossed baby from the woman. The background shows plowed fields in furrowed green grey mounds on both sides of the light blue river. Dark growth on either side of the river defines its edges. For that, I used closely packed Hooker Green clumps as bull rushes and weeds. Now, I would make the toga for the woman a sharp green to strengthen her impact with the lovely complement of red hair and the green garment. The dots and dashes around the border infer that the picture is a map to follow for fearless children becoming confident adults.
