Little Girl

I know its been a while since my last post and last painting in fact, so I decided to get off my but and finish a painting I started the end of last year. Painting people is not my forte and I suppose that's why I left it in the unfinished pile for so long.

I think my creative thoughts have left me in the lurch and so I have just titled it "Little Girl." I feel more comfortable painting birds and animals than people but hope this one appeals to someone out there.

To those who left comments and did not get a response my sincere apologies. We have a number of email addresses and all are monitored through a programme called e-prompter which uses a different colour button that flashes for each mail box when new mail arrives. Ordinarily I will be notified of new mail within 15 min of its arrival.

The last 2 weeks or so the little green button has not announced any new mail for this blog. By this afternoon I was starting to feel forgotten and neglected and decided to check the mailbox, lo and behold there were about 50 new messages.

I am not sure how or why this mailbox fell through the cracks and was not monitored but in future I will check the mail box regularly to make sure I do not miss any important mail. Thank you all for your comments I will try to respond to them all tonight.

Hi Caroline,

The painting is made more concrete by the colorful details of toys you have included. It's like Alice waiting for her destined wagon trip to wonderland.

A charming little girl in a secure environment trusted by her innocence. You may be expressing an inner emotion here. :-)--Durano, done!

I like this a lot, it kind of reminds me of a girl running away from home.

I've been checking out your blog everyday and your artwork is amazing but "Little Girl"? Well, she is fabulous! I love it!

It's strange you say that, about feeling uncomfortable painting people. I was thinking of that just last night. I've always loved to draw but seem to stick to birds. I feel so comfortable drawing them. Your painting turned out beautifully though. Kudos!
