One of my few outdoor scenes, this painting takes full advantage of the natural shadows of daytime. Allie was a great little kid the day I met her. She took my hand and gave me a tour of her grandmother’s garden, which she helps tend and loves.
Sometimes, in a painting, one sees glimpses and intimations of who a young child may become.
This piece was featured in the first CSOPA (Connecticut Society of Portrait Artists) showcase, an exhibit in Oxford, CT from October 2nd through October 29th, 2013.
