Waiting to Live

Oil on Canvas, 24 x 48

I was coming out of Versailles near Paris when I saw these schoolboys 
sitting on the curb. I tried to photograph them without them noticing me,
but the one little boy looked up and smiled. He told the others that I
had taken his picture. I named it "Waiting to Live" in contrast to the painting
"Tired of Life" by Ferdinand Hodler that I saw in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich.
