I saw this line of pre-schoolers out for a walk with their two attendants one rainy day. They were a splash of colour and exuberence against a dull gray sky and seemed thrilled to just be out in the world and the weather, not a care among them. I thought "What a metaphor for all of us!". Even at such a young age we are individuals, but still interconnected, not only on small scales but global scales as well. I kept this image in my mind for at least a year before I recently sat down and put paint to canvas. I believe the metaphor is more relevant today than ever. We depend on each other to safely navigate this world!
