Leading a hand

leading a hand to our little ones. No matter how old they are, they’re still our little girls or boys in every parent eyes. They are little and that is why they need our guidance and protection. Sometimes news headline reads “babies found in dumpster” or some little girl or boy admitted to hospital with heavy bruises and later did not make it. I’m sure such incident does happen in any part of the world but lately it happen quite often in Malaysia, cases after cases of cruelty surface in every part of the country. Such news really make one feel really sad and often the blame falls on the parents or guardian of the kid. That we can’t deny, but there is also another face of the story. What made them do it? I guess one’s can say, It’s all in the mind. All i can say mental health had not made much progress in this country, many don’t even know they are sick before it’s too late. Sometime leading a hand to the little one might not solve the entire puzzle, the big one too need help urgently.

  1. This has a wonderful strength to your hand, yet holding the child’s hand with such tenderness. Wonderful painting and an important subject.

  2. Not only is your painting beautiful but what you have said, here. I totally agree with you.

    • Thanks Leslie. I’m glad you like the hand. I reference to my own hand and my almost 2 year old son. Went back and forth with this piece but glad it’s done.

  3. Oh beautiful, I agree such a strong piece but you can still sense the tenderness.

  4. Oh, this is wonderful! I love the loose flow of tone and cross contour modeling. I recently finished a painting of hands myself and so am very interested in technical details of yours. What size it is? What colors are in it? I seem to see some burnt umber and sepia, is that right? What else? How did you build the background?

    • Thanks Alex but i really like your hand painting better. Yours is really realistic. This piece is 6X10″. You have sharp eyes, that right did use some umber as darker tone and shadow, rest are mostly the skin colors (not sure what is the name for it). The background is made from prussion blue and black, have to wask a few round to get the tone right.

  5. Great painting the background is crazy madd!! Great painting keep up the good and talent work that you’re doing.

  6. That is so sad, Francis. Yes, we have these things happen here in the US, too. I think it’s influenced at least in part by the devaluation of human life brought about by many factors. These little ones are made in the image of God, and God will require their blood–not only of those who shed it, but also from those who may have been able to protect them.

    Good for you, taking on such a tragic situation.

    • Thanks Cindy, i’m totally agreed with the devaluation of human life and i think nowadays it’s really getting very bad. Worse if the authorities just taking it easy and not much of effort teken to prevent it. All we can do best is prey and hope things will get better someday. Actually there are some non profit organization taking extra measure to help the situation here in my country but still more action is needed if things need to become better.

  7. Francis, I love the hands. So beautiful and heartwarming. And I agree with what you wrote.

  8. I agree with you too , lots of situations can make you feel very depressed – maybe it’s also the fact that cruelty &/ or suffering & neglect have gone on as long as humans & are never ending.

    Then you just have to remind yourself that good does also exist. In the end we must remember we are animals & we can only have reasonable values & therefore be good if we are in a situation that allows us to get to that point. Many other animals will also kill their young under certain circumstances of stress or hardship.

    • I totally agree Sonya. Well life is cruel to a certain extend but good still exist. I hope the future of human race will keep instilling good moral and values if not i guess our stay on this planet will be meaningless.
