Flower Girl

"Flower Girl" 4" x 6" acrylic on masonite

This sweet little girl brings back memories of when my girls were little and wanted to make a wish on the pretty dandelion "flower", but they almost crush it in the process.    I painted this like a watercolor with the lightest light against the darkest color.   Her head pops against the background and her darker dress is set against the light flowers.. and yes, it is bright!

So, SO sweet. I love how she is surrounded by all those flowers. They grow up too fast don't they!!?

Wonderful color and lines. Sets a sweet sweet mood, this child does and your paint brush brings her to life.

This is so beautiful and tender, Diana. I also remember my daughter blowing into the dandelion "flower" - we still love to do that!
The colors in this painting are so pretty - full of life.
