My Childhood Happiness
Justine PoMy Childhood Happiness
Acrylic on Canvas
36" x 36"
This piece takes me back to my childhood, where I am enjoying my Saturday at home, playing inside the house. Everything was so simple back then. Saturdays, at home, for me, was perfect-- a safe space for a child like me. I wasn't the one to play outside-- I was sheltered, but playing inside brought me so much happiness and joy that I couldn't ask for more.
