"Time at the Bus Stop" fluid acrylic 12" X 12"

Time at the Bus Stop by April M Rimpo


Time at the Bus Stop portrays a family having a few moments to talk and catch up while waiting for their ride. The morning light causes wonderful highlights and long shadows that caught my eye. As I was painting the family I couldn't help but wonder where they were headed.  Are the boys on their way to school? Is this a family outing? I decided your context heavily influences how each of us perceives the scene. Perhaps they are really headed to the fields to work. 

But in reality their destination doesn't matter. What inspired me to paint this family is the interactions between them. The young mother seemed to be listening closely to her youngest son, while the older boy looked on while eating some breakfast. I suspect the oldest woman may have been the grandmother who appears to be a bit lost in thought. It was catching that happy moment in time that compelled me to paint. I hope my painting makes you smile.

  1. The painting does make me smile. Any painting with a face grabs my attention. You have gone above and beyond a "slice of life" painting. This one is a feast in every way -just beautiful!

  2. So much to look at April! So many stories here. Love the details. His dirty jeans, Grandma's faded ones. The energy of the little one, and the way Mom looks just a bit tired. Leaning on the stucco wall. Wonderful :)
