Capturing Vulnerabilty on Canvas


studio.shotI just discovered a living, young artist, Mary Sauer, who manages to captures the essence of young children. There is a sense of whimsy in some, in others a sense of how delicate and vulnerable little people really are.  Some eyes are open with wonder, others study the world with serious intent.

Dr. Seuss, author

“A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

Madeleine L’Engle

When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability… To be alive is to be vulnerable.

Addy Drawring

Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa” We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear.”

“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
