Thank you for sharing just a gorgeous painting! Just lovely! I enjoyed how the red in her pinafore picks up the red of the hollyhocks. Incredible how talented he was !! Love all his works of the girls who look to be preteen agers. He was prolific, too.. wowow…L So sweet! Her facial features are exquisite but she looks a tad unhappy as if to say, “Will I ever get this finished?” The artist has the ability to make the foreground (the girl) look almost live, while the background fades away a bit. It makes his artwork look almost photographic. Comments are closed.
