The inspiration came from a session of photos I took some years ago of when the children in my family were jumping on a mat. In the painting, I didn't paint the jumping mat, I changed the color of the dress and I made up the background from my own head. The reason why I chose the photo as a reference was because I love the body composition and I think it looks like she is hovering.
I gave this one away to the parents of the child as they've had their birthdays recently. Normally I don't like to give away art but this time I felt it was appropriate.
