my illustrated life 'the flower girl of corot' by myra anderson . . .

My little mini-cupcakes - thank you for your encouraging comments on my last post!  So, I saw this oil painting by the artist Corot and I wanted to 'illustrate' his painting by drawing a girl holding flowers.  It was such a delightful way to draw - and it was wonderful to be encouraged by the artists of the present  - and to feel a connection with an artist of the past.

Hi Myra,
Glad to see you have not stopped producing artwork, you had me worried.
Love this little girl and her flowers.
My turn to post...

PS: I kind of feel like the Corot girl in his painting, ready to fall asleep!
I like yours better she has some life in her.
