The Flower Girl

"The Flower Girl"
16 x 20, oil

I did a version of this several years ago. It is of my oldest granddaughter Mya, who was 3 or 4 at the time (now 13). I really loved the composition of this setting and really enjoyed applying the things I have learned since the first time I painted it.  One of the things that I really enjoyed is using some new, high quality paint brushes from Rosemary Brushes of England. I am really surprised what  difference they made.

SIlver Award Winner

I entered this painting into the 121st Annual Juried Exhibition of the Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati. I just got back from the opening and the awards presentations - It got the Silver Medal Award!  I am a happy camper to say the least.
