What a gorgeous little watercolour painting and so beautifully executed. I love her polka dot dress and the colours of her hair and flowers. Perfect!

Betsy Brock said...

This is SO lovely! I love everything about it...the dress, shoes, her hair and pretty eyes...and that gorgeous bouquet!

There is something about your art that takes me directly back to my childhood in the 1940's and 50s. Perhaps it reminds me a bit of our READERS Dick and Jane, not sure. But i love it. Thanks for the memories. Just really really delightful. HPPF.

Thank you for your comments I have had fun playing with these flowers! The bouquet gets around. I love vintage childrens books as well and find them an inspiration.

Looks like my daughter when she started to school. Those emotions do play a big part of getting there. Your painting is really gorgeous.

This is so adorabel! Her dress is my favorite shade of blue. And the flowers are so colorful and happy.
You have such a lovely blog and much talent.

very cute... always thought it would be fun to be able to wear a dress of your choosing rather than the uniforms we have here in Australia... having said that uniforms make it easy to get them ready... great painting as always...xx

This is really nice. Love detail, the face is so lifelike, the bouquet also casts a metaphoric illustration of polka dots as well, great example also on the dress, blue and white, perfect for summer. Thanks
