Fathers Surprise - Art
In Fathers Surprise, a well-chosen color scheme and a beautiful, nurturing image of an infant being cradled provides a touching and unique look into the nature of fatherhood. This painting has a rosy pink, monochromatic color scheme that fills the painting to its edges. Swirls of cheery pink wrap around a central figure, the image of a vulnerable infant being cradled in safety. The father is the nurturing source of stability and security in this painting.
The pink color scheme of the painting gives a hint as to the nature of the infant in this piece. Pink, a color traditionally associated with femininity, represents the child’s gender. The “father’s surprise” in this painting is a baby girl, a female being that he is expected to nurture and care for. Fathers Surprise is a beautiful piece with a rosy color scheme that reveals the nature and responsibility of fatherhood.
