Forgiveness: 8/12/09

With a dab of paint, I used water to spread the color over the entire paper in light, transparent washes and darker areas. With the first layer still wet, another color was blended in. New colors were added in layers and spread around in gentle strokes and swirls.

Can a child forgive without being apologized to? Do some people find it easier to forgive than others? Does the level of severity matter? Each painting goes deeper and gets me closer to understanding.
