My Sunshine


I got my Hawthorne on Painting book and I need to share this quote.  "First become the painter and the artist will take care of itself."  Powerful, right?  Just where I am now, a student of painting.

I worked very hard for a couple of days on this painting.  I wonder if I should be bolder with my color.  I thought about adding a red ribbon in the little girl's hair, but couldn't bring myself to taking away from the softness of the colors.  Both mother and daughter had the same color of hair and wore white.  I could have used my artist license and made the change, but decided to leave it alone.
