A vivid portrayal of the parent/child relationship for one artist. Notice how there is a person peering out the window; who might that be. The ball seems to have a happy face albeit looking down in what appears to be a puddle (of tears?) possibly. The part that stands out the most is the look of utter sadness on this child’s face. Interestingly, the mothers hands are reaching out to her child, yet, the hand on the right seems somewhat distorted. Does this mean the child does experience the touch as the mother intended or is the child missing her daddy so much that nothing else can offer comfort to her. A poignant moment of emotions for this artist.
