"Sarah - Fully Alive"

One of my Granddaughters lives nearby and I have the opportunity to be a part of  special celebrations and capture  candid moments like this one captured on her birthday a couple of years ago.  When I first saw the photo, I knew I had to paint it someday... There will be an exhibit "Fully Alive" coming up and this is the  vision I  couldn't get out of my head.   Sarah enjoying a simple activity to it's fullest.

Daisies and Pottery

This is a WIP I'm working on.   I love the warm colors of the jug and it's color harmony with the indian motif clothe.  I still have a bit of  finishing work to do but thought I'd share the WIP (work in progress).
