Russ Ritell, Illuminated, Oil on Canvas

30 x 40
Oil on Canvas

Illumination  is a portrait of my (then) 6 year old daughter Kayla. She represents a light in our lives, as we struggled, as a couple to have a second child. This painting is also metaphorical referencing the light as an attraction, (in the insects case for a mate), symbolizing the instinct for reproduction. It also connotes the presence of magic and innocence where nothing is outside the realm of possibility.
