Always present was a photo I took of my daughter in the pool in Spain. I started to work on it this year. I used a grid technique to ensure accuracy. The photo was taken on an iphone and was live so you had a a few seconds of movement. I edited this clip as she was smiling and looking at me lovingly, wanting my attention. the next minute she was gone, not smiling, not looking at me on to the next thing. As an artist perhaps I get to see this with clarity, noticing and holding the memory of emotion knowing how fleeting it is. She is unknowing and is happy and at one in the moment.
