Question Five, Catapla

Abstract

My young KODA son was the model of the fairies presented.

The boy fairies are signing the five WH questions- What, Where, When, Why and How. They are flying in the fully bloomed flowers up above in the magnificent Catapla Tree that grows in our yard. This painting's themes are intertwined of the youth innocence, acquisition of the sign language, magical fantasy and the wonders of the natural world.
