Girl with Garland

It has been a rough winter here in the Northeast!  But Spring has finally sprung!  On a recent day in my studio, I didn't have much time and was rummaging around in my reference photograph file to find something to paint.  I found this photograph of a young girl who had posed for a portrait class.  I had received it from my daughter, (who took the class!)  She had many beautiful poses and knew that I was always in need of painting inspiration and may enjoy painting some of them.   She was right!  Maybe it was the May Day like outfit, or soul-filled countenance, but I was so happy to paint this little portrait!  It has was well received recently at the North River Art Society's "Focus on Figures" show earning an honorable mention!  That was happy!
