It's the Taking Part is a McKee work that draws on the artist's experiences of growing up. Although this painting is not a direct portrayal of the artist's family, it details something Pete experienced countless times growing up through the use of different characters. In this work a young child and their mother play mini golf, something that Pete did as a young boy with his family when spending a week of the school summer holidays by the seaside. Although this scene captures an everyday moment, the work has a tender message, which celebrates these small and important moments when parent's bond with their children.
