The Poetry of Art - Portraits Collections

Growing, playing,having fun.

Friends for life.

The backstory:

On a trip to Europe, I spent one afternoon here. Two little German villages, side by side, share their names. St. Tonis, and Vorst. On the border of the “Vorst” side of town, which I would name “The town center--Sankt Godehard”, I set up my equipment. The towns people went about their business. People rode by on their bikes to pickup the groceries they needed. Pedestrians crossed the road, and children peddled their bikes here and there. Soon, 3 little boys came up to me and tried to communicate. None of them spoke English, so we smiled at each other and did our best to say our greetings. Soon they were back, looking on at my progress as I continued to paint. The third time they came by, I lifted my camera and pointed at the trio. I smiled and nodded asking if i could take their picture. Smiling their big friendly smiles, they posed for me. And here they are. Growing up in Tonisvorst
