The Disappearing Boy

Happy Thursday dear readers!
Did you enjoy the bank holiday weekend?
Monday was the most perfect sunny day!

I'm always looking for art and I've been following this artist for a while now. I found him on Etsy a few years back and I'm in love with his style of painting, his colour palette and his technique.

You know when a painting moves you and you keep going back to look at it, taking in all the details, the colour, the expression, trying to read the emotion behind the painting?





I recently bought an archival digital print of The Disappearing Boy.  As soon as I set eyes on him, it reminded me of the fleeting time between being a boy and becoming a man.  I have a 16 year old son and it seems only yesterday that he was a boy of nine climbing trees and now he's nearly all grown up.  This painting reminds me of how precious childhood is and how brief.


Kai Samuels-Davis is an artist from northern California.  He's been painting since he was 16 years old.  He studied art at the Woodstock school of Art in NY, then moved on to SUNY  Purchase where he received a BFA.  After moving to the west coast he completed the MFA programme at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena,CA.

What are you planning for the weekend ahead?

Have a good one!

  3. His art is very interesting, are any of them looking happy and pleased with life? Your interpretation of The disappearing boy is very good. I remember when my son was that age... yesterday it seems. But he is now 36.
