“Children are the source of love; they plant it at our feet, nurture it and help it grow throughout our lives.” -Mackenzie Thorpe
In this limited edition print for sale, Mackenzie Thorpe shows a child skipping and dancing through a forest on a dirt path. As he floats along, he holds two vibrant red hearts in his hands as if he is ready to give them to whoever he encounters. The child is wearing the dark, hooded duffle coat and sturdy shoes on his big feet that Thorpe often depicts in his work. The foreground is filled with red heart shaped flowers as Thorpe believes that children help to sow the seeds of love. The child is drawn with no face as he is meant to represent everyone and anyone. Thorpe wants the viewer to see themselves in this figure, no matter their age, race, or background.
Although he doesn’t have much, the child’s heart is filled with love that he is ready to share with the world. His stride is light-hearted and his head is held high. The figure effortlessly floats through the vibrant forest, carried by his positivity and love. We cannot see his face, but his gait tells us that he is happy and hopeful for the future that he is stepping into. Thorpe believes that life is a journey, we all know the beginning but we do not know the end. The child doesn’t know where he is going to end up, but he’s bringing love with him on every step of his journey.
Thorpe utilizes the finest hand made, pure pigment pastels in his work, providing a stunning range of color that is visible in this artwork. He expertly blends the pastels in his signature style, merging one form into the next. The sun sets in this image behind a dense thicket of trees, providing a gorgeous background that complements the lush green forest and communicates an overall sense of hope.
