She is doing her studies (chores) and when done she can sketch … fruit and flowers and bird feathers. She is an amateur naturalist. She is me in another time and age. Later today she may go outside, poking around looking for signs of spring …. What a gorgeous painting! Reminds me of The Goldfinch by Fabritius, That’s beautiful!~ Pausing from doodling to commune with a bird who felt safe to come near… So Charming, what a beautiful girl and so intent on her work with such an ephemeral temptation by her side. This is a picture I would like in my collection – well if I could afford a collection …Thank-you for sharing it with us. The gaze of mutual admiration, such tranquility! Comments are closed.
