IlluminatedThese four children were in a play that I photographed.  As they waited for their parts, they sat off on the sidelines reading a book.  I’m inspired by the way their faces are illuminated, almost as if by the book itself.  This seems right, as books are truly illuminating.  I’ve painted several studies of this photograph and am currently working on another.  I have very high expectations.  Let’s hope they’re illuminated expectations!
