I took this photo years ago - one of about a go-zillion snaps taken over the years I worked at a school - and have always wanted to paint it. I love their little bodies, friends all squeezed together on a bench, and what their body language tells us about each one. I love that we don't need faces or a certain place or even for them to be dressed differently to tell the story. Individuals but definitely part of a group.
