Why did you pick this picture?
every new piece outshines my others for me.”a young girl reading” is a tribute to Fragonard piece and is my latest one.
Where did the idea come from?
this piece is part of “innocence series” and the idea is so simple…children are innocent and I just love to paint them with the lightest medium which of course is watercolors.
What does this mean to you?
is one more “child” of mine
