This painting is STUNNING. Generally, I don't usually like pieces with children in them, but this one I really do. She reminds me a bit of myself when I was much, MUCH younger (though no photograph of me as a kid ever came out this well).
The pastels, the airiness, and the swirling in the objects all blend together into a every childlike, whimsical painting, that I absolutely ADORE.
So the next time my therapist tells me to go to my Happy Place, I now have a real picture to imagine. (TMI? Probably ... eh, oh well).
