Say It With Flowers

I never quite know where I get my ideas. This one is an evolution. I was thinking about ways to expand my 'Little Man' series - I've done two previously that I really enjoyed creating and one of them sold (Man On A Bird On A Wire). So, I had this image of my little man looking up at a woman in red high heels. It seemed pretty preposterous. When I mentioned the image to my son, he told me that sounded kind of lecherous, like the man was looking up the woman's dress. That was not the intent. Then I thought, What if he had a bouquet of flowers behind his back?" Sometimes, when you're making an apology, you feel rather small. The title for the painting came to me after I had sketched it out. Originally, everything was going to be on white as if the whole scene were shot on seamless. Instead, I opted to put this situation in a type of room setting and decided to make the wall the same color as her shoes. Strange how we end up where we end up sometimes!

There's the movie "Attack of the 50 ft. Woman". Only according to his height, she's more like 150.
