Naomi Tiry Salgado: “Wonderment: The Industry of Youth” is a series of studio oil paintings about the intense curiosity and enjoyment of life that children get when they’re totally engaged in the world around them. Their wonderment is contagious…we pick it up just by watching them.

These paintings were an experiment in new color theory concepts–working with a new color wheel and gamut masking tool as I carefully chose pigments for the limited palettes.
