The Flower Girl
This was painted during the Steelville MO Plein Air Event. The day's sponsor invited us to paint their house, but I'm not really a house painter. Then I spotted this beautiful little statue nestled amongst the hydrangea bushes. Anytime I can paint a figure, even an inanimate one, I get excited. At first, all it lacked was a little sunshine, which thankfully showed up halfway through the painting process. The house owners purchased this piece in addition to their house portrait.
