pure joy ... pavement slabs and the future of my Art!!!
This image is of my grandson, who was SO excited having played bumper cars, for the first time ever. He is showing pure joy! ... something l think a lot of adults have forgotten how to do these days. It was such joy to watch him having so much fun.
