I Love a Parade

Watching the Parade
11 x 14
Oil On Raymar Panel

One of my dear friends shared this adorable photo of her granddaughter with me.  I just could not resist painting it!  The little one was watching a parade but I think was most impressed with the red lollipop in her hand.  It was fun to capture her pensive expression.  

I always tell myself to paint something patriotic around the 4th of July...then I get interested in something else and never quite get my patriotic paintings completed on time.  This week, while in the midst of deadlines and paintings that HAVE to get done...I decided this adorable little girl would be a nice respite from my "work"


  1. The expression on her face is beautiful! Love the whole painting.You are so good at figurative paintings Maria, I'm looking forward to your 30/30 pieces!!!

  2. There is power in how you capture ones expression and mood. Very sweet.


Yayyy!!! Thanks for commenting!
